My indoor plant is placed near my window where there's lots of sunlight in the afternoon. Can it kill the leaves? I realized it turned yellow. . . I water the plant once a week.

It depends on the plant. You need to determine what kind of plant it is and what kind of light it needs. If it it getting too much or too little light, this can cause yellow leaves.
