85 Year Old GA Woman Serving 10 Year Sentence For Killing Cheating Boyfriend


Lena Driskell, then 78, shot and killed her former boyfriend at Atlanta Housing Authority’s Hightower Manor in June 2005.

Driskell didn’t want to end a romance with her neighbor, widower Herman Winslow.

But Winslow, 85, had found another girlfriend.

Winslow was sitting on a couch in the lobby of the high rise, reading a newspaper when Driskell, wearing a hair net, support stockings, bathrobe and slippers, put a gun to his temple and fired four times.


When the police arrived, she waved the gun at them and said: 

“I did it, and I’d do it again.”

Driskell, now 86, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and is serving a 10-year sentence at Pulaski State Prison.

Wow! So this is what there is to look forward to with dating! Even as a senior citizen! 

I wonder how she feels about her love rage crime now that’s she’s locked up at 86.
