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.
