Charlevoix woman accused of killing her mother has lots of silent support
By Patrick Sullivan
The day Sandra Gregory killed her mother, the two women had just received some bad news.
Amelia Meadie Gregory was having trouble seeing.
A doctor thought the vision problem was neurological, which probably meant the 94-year-old would need to move from the home she shared with her daughter on US 31 just south of Charlevoix into an assisted living facility.
Amelia Gregory told her daughter she didnt want to go into a nursing home; she wanted to be with her husband, who is deceased.
Sandra Gregory told police she granted her mothers last wish on March 27. Now Sandra Gregory, 73, is in jail awaiting trial on a charge of open murder.
She used a walker to reach the podium at a recent court hearing where, through her attorney, Kraag Lieberman, she waived a preliminary hearing on the charges.
District Court Judge Richard May denied a request that Gregory be released on bail.
