This looks like it could have been a couple of different issues.

Sitting close to that window- the temperatures could get just a little too cold for the plant. This will cause the damage that you see. This is most likely.

Other causes include low humidity, or overwatering. The soil doesn't appear over saturated, and I am not seeing immediate signs of overwatering. This doesn't mean that the roots aren't rotting. It wouldn't hurt to make sure, though.

You may try moving from that window. That can help.
