Woman Charged With Killing Elderly Neighbors During Home Robbery


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--A woman is in the Franklin County Jail, charged with murder, for killing her two elderly neighbors and robbing their home in Prairie Township.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office received a 911 hang-up call Sunday afternoon along Carilla Lane.

When they arrived, they found 77-year-old John Blanc with stab wounds, and 75-year-old Susan Castore appeared to have been strangled.

Another woman, 40-year-old Kelly Vokas, was still in the home at the time, and was apprehended. Detectives believe she knew the couple, and went to the home to rob them.

Vokas is charged with two counts of murder, and will appear in court for an arraignment on Tuesday.
