    IL - Officer Hester Scott, 55, murdered, Chicago, 4 Nov 2011


    November 7, 2011

    With their mother unable to care for them, the four grandchildren of Chicago police Officer Hester Scott came to live with her about eight years ago, family members said.

    But she struggled to control the erratic behavior of her teenage grandson, Keshawn Perkins, who has bipolar disorder and has occasionally been hospitalized for mental health treatment, family members said.

    "She loved him," said Scott's sister, Marlene Scott-Pittman. "She thought she could fix it."

    Wide-eyed and swimming in his oversized jail outfit, Perkins listened during his bond hearing Sunday as prosecutors told a judge the 15-year-old beat and stabbed his 55-year-old grandmother to death in their South Side home Friday after she confronted him about skipping school.

    From February 2015:


    A man was sentenced to 23 years in prison after he was found guilty of beating his grandmother, a Chicago police officer, to death in 2011.

    Keshawn Perkins was sentenced by a Cook County judge Tuesday after pleading guilty to killing Hester Scott, according to court records.
