A 70 year old woman, faces capitol murder charges for killing her neighbor to death with a hammer. Kathy MacClellan may be the oldest defendant to
In Hickory Hills, a tidy mobile home community popular with retirees, 70-year-old Kathy MacClellan was known as a friendly woman who baked cookies
for the neighbors and talked too much.
Nothing about the white-haired MacClellan suggested a capacity for violence. Which is why the accusation she now faces — that she bludgeoned her
84-year-old neighbor to death with a hammer — has come as such a shock to residents here.
MacClellan allegedly attacked Marguerite “Tuddy” Eyer with the claw end of a hammer Feb. 7. The victim, who was found in the kitchen of her home a
few blocks away from the MacClellan house, told police that “Kathy Mc ... did it with a hammer,” according to court documents. She died 13 minutes
after being rushed to the emergency room; the coroner said she had been struck in the head 37 times.

The description of this lwoman sounds like my grandmother. who would think a woman that old would do such a terrible thing. What made her bludgeon
her close to 40 times with the hammer is not known, only that the two women did not like one another.
