Charmayne Maxwell,  vocalist of the 90s R&B group Brownstone, was found dead last week.

According to TMZ, Maxwell was home alone with her son Nicolaj after attending his soccer game. When her husband and music producer Carsten Soulshock returned home, he found her unconscious but with a pulse. By the time Maxwell was transported to the Cedar Sinai Hospital, she was pronounced dead. She was 46 years old.

After LAPD investigation, it is said that Maxwell's death was caused by a fall. She had a wine glass in her hand at the time and after dropping it, fell backwards onto the shattered glass. TMZ shares details on the report:
... the wine glass shattered on the ground behind Maxwell's head, and when she landed shards of glass punctured the back of her neck in two places. We're told there was an injury to the back of her head, and it's possible she was knocked unconscious.
Speculations are circulating that Maxwell's fall was due to intoxication. An autopsy has not been performed yet to confirm this.

Maxwell will be remembered as a loving mother and wife and talented member of Brownstone. The group's most successful single "If You Love Me" received a Billboard Music Award and a Grammy nomination.
