    PA - Ada Adams, 90, overdosed with morphine, York, 27 May 2008


    YORK, Pa. (AP) A central Pennsylvania woman accused of having killed her elderly grandmother with drug-laced chili almost four years ago is now charged with first-degree murder........

    Prosecutors allege that the defendant stole checks from 90-year-old Ada Adams and forged and cashed them, then killed the victim with morphine-laced chili in April 2008 to cover up the thefts. Authorities say she was working in a hospital emergency room and had access to leftover morphine.

    From December 2012:


    At Tuesday's hearing, Shelby Adams, 41, of York City, pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and four counts of forgery.

    As part of a negotiated plea agreement, she was sentenced to 25 to 50 years in prison and given credit for the 12-1/2 months in prison she's already served...

    Investigators were able to corroborate much of what Shelby Adams told them about her mother, according to Barker, who said they were preparing to charge Norma Jean Adams with first- and third-degree murder. But before that could happen, she died Aug. 5 of medical problems, according to Barker. "Norma was the mastermind," he said, calling the relationship between mother and daughter "disturbed."
