A well-liked kindergarten teacher in Georgia was shot to death at her parents’ home allegedly by her mother-in-law on Thursday.Authorities say 63-year old Elizabeth B. Wall of McRae is accused of shooting dead her daughter-in-law, 35-year-old Jenna Wall at a home on Antioch Road SW in Powder Springs.
The grandmother arrived at Jenna Wall’s home with her grandsons, ages 7 and 8 around noon on Thursday, WSB-TV reported.
She told the boys to wait outside in a pickup truck when she entered the house.
Authorities said the children heard several gunshots from inside the home.
‘We’ve been able to get a good bit of information from them. They are safe. They are sound,’ said Cobb police Sgt. Dana Pierce.
‘They are at our Crimes Against Children Unit. They are being interviewed.’
The victim’s estranged husband and the boys’ father, Jerrod Wall, was alerted to the murder by a strange call he received from his mother asking him to come to the home.
When he arrived, he found her sitting in the living room holding a gun, WSB-TV reported.
Wall has been charged with murder, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony and cruelty to children, WGCL reported.
According to WSB-TV, neighbors say that the teacher lived at the home with her parents.
