(NEW YORK POST) – A Georgia granny admitted to murdering her daughter-in-law — who was in the middle of a nasty divorce with the older woman’s son, according to reports.
Elizabeth “Betsy” Wall, 64, will spend the rest of her life in prison after pleading guilty but mentally ill to murder charges last Friday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Jenna Wall, 35, was inside her parents’ home in Powder Springs, Georgia, in June 2016 when Elizabeth — who claims she was hearing voices at the time — shot her four times and left her to die.
Jenna’s two sons, both under the age of 10, were with her but were taken outside by Elizabeth prior to the shooting and told to wait in a pickup truck.
The deranged granny researched shootings and purchased a firearm more than two months before the murder, police said.
Jenna, who worked as a kindergarten teacher in Cobb County, filed from divorce from Elizabeth’s son Jerrod in October 2015, saying that their marriage was “irretrievably broken.”
Jerrod had claimed his wife had an affair and fought for custody of the boys, whom he claimed he was denied the right to see.
The couple was married in 2004.
Elizabeth was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Her lawyer said she spent time in a mental facility following her arrest.
“Certainly she was very remorseful about what happened. She’s been very open with me about it,” said her lawyer, Jimmy Berry, according to AJC.
“I think that’s what caused the shooting, the voices she heard, believing that was the best thing to do. She anticipated she would shoot herself, but ultimately she didn’t.”
