On Tuesday, Nicholas Brooks is not going to be charged with attempted murder in the death of girlfriend and designer Sylvie Cachay.

Instead, the 24 year old will be arraigned on second-degree murder charges.

The prosecutors changed their mind after viewing surveillance video from the Soho House, which showed Brooks was the only one to spend a good chunk of time in the hotel room where she was found dead.

They'll also factor in the New York Medical Examiner's report, which ruled that Cachay was in fact murdered by strangulation and drowning.

Boyfriend Indicted On Sylvie Cachay's Death

Nicholas Brooks was indicted on Thursday in the death of girlfriend Sylvie Cachay almost a week after the designer was found lifeless in a bathtub at the SoHo House hotel.

Specific charges won't be announced until his next court appearance on January 4th.

Last week Brooks was charged with second-degree attempted murder and second-degree strangulation, however the Cachay's death must be ruled a homicide in order for him to face those charges.

The initial autopsy performed by the New York City Medical Examiner came back inconclusive. But secondary tissue and toxicology tests were requested and the results are expected in the next couple of weeks.

Designer Found Dead At NYC's SoHo House

Sad.

Emerging fashion designer Sylvie Cachay was found dead in her room at NYC's SoHo House hotel on Thursday.

Police say the 33 year old's body was submerged in a bathtub with bruises around her neck and bite marks on her hand. The medical examiner is now trying to determine if she was strangled.

Cops have already interviewed Sylvie's boyfriend, 24 year old Nicholas Brooks, who checked in with her at around 12:20 am after a small fire broke out in the designer's apartment.

The couple had a history of arguing, but he's denied any involvement with her death.

According to a source Brooks showed up to the room at 3:30 am after going out to get something to eat.

The source adds: "He claims she was alive, he left her at the hotel to get something to eat, and when he came back, she was the way she was."

Investigators are reviewing the hotel's video surveillance to see if his alibi checks out.
