Cops: Woman, 78, killed beau, 85
Victim had a new girlfriend, police say

Lena Driskell didn't have the look of a suspected killer wearing a hair net, support stockings, bathrobe and slippers.

But Atlanta police say the 78-year-old's motive was quite common a woman scorned.

Driskell didn't want to end her yearlong romance with her neighbor, widower Herman Winslow, police said. But Winslow, 85, had found another girlfriend.

Uninvited, Driskell kept stopping by her former beau's apartment, one floor below hers in Hightower Manor, a public-assisted complex for seniors and the disabled in southwest Atlanta.

Fed up, Winslow complained to security June 10. That night, Driskell told the guard, "I've got something for his [expletive]," police said.

Winslow was sitting on a couch in the lobby, reading a newspaper when Driskell pressed the gun to his temple and fired at least twice, said Atlanta police Lt. Doug Little.

After officers arrived, Driskell, whose hands and robe were splattered with blood, turned and waved the gun at them with her finger still on the trigger.

"I did it, and I'd do it again," Little said she ranted.

Uhm...who wants to bet she'll plead "temporary insanity"? Better yet...she won't remember doing it because of Alzheimer's... :rolleyes: Just kill her and save the taxpayers money. :angel:

I think she did it because life in prison would be better than a public-assistance nursing home. And you know what, she's right!

Hon, anyone with Lucy Ewing in an avatar can't be all bad! Check out the first two seasons of Dallas on DVD. Lucy and Ray Krebbs are constantly making out in the barn and kissing and groping each other. It's implied they've actually done it. I guess they forgot that 6 seasons later when Ray turns out to be Jock's son, and hence, Lucy's uncle!

I know! That's one reason I loved Lucy! Incest is best (in some cases!) :devil:
