Grand’Ma killed at 88

On May 3, 2009, Mabel Berry was killed in her home. Mabel was spending the later years of her life working as a volunteer at a rescue mission. Tiffany Wise was a resident and worker at the mission who attended Mabel’s Bible study classes. She came to the widow’s home to rob her, and beat her to death with a large rock. Hearing screams, Mabel’s neighbors called the police. When they arrived, they found blood on the front door and throughout the 88-year-old’s home. Her body was in the back yard under a sheet.
