A 19-year-old woman has been convicted of second degree murder in the robbery and shooting death of an 87-year-old World War II veteran outside his Northwest Philadelphia home in 2010.
During closing arguments, prosecutor Thomas Lipscomb said defendant India Spellman — now 19, but 17 at the time of the murder — admitted to police that she and co-defendant Von Combs wanted money, but there was a struggle.
Prosecutor Thomas Lipscomb has told the jury 87-year-old George Greaves survived the deadliest war in human history, only to be gunned down, shot once in the chest, in his driveway by a teenage girl.
Von Combs, 14 at the time of the murder and believed to be the lookout, was tried as a juvenile and convicted of second-degree murder.
Von Combs, 14 at the time of the crime, and 17-year-old India Spellman allegedly murdered World War II veteran George Greaves during a robbery.
