Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage.

It sounds like overwatering finally got the best of it. Moving inside can make this worse since there is no intense UV to kill off any surface infections.

At this point, I would treat with a fungicide and make sure that the soil dries out, thoroughly, down to about 3 or 4 inches between waterings.
