By Greg Bluestein

ATLANTA, June 24 -- Furious that their romance was ending, a 78-year-old great-grandmother shot her 85-year-old ex-beau to death as he read a newspaper in a senior citizens home, police said.

"I did it, and I'd do it again!" Lena Driskell yelled to officers who arrived at the home June 10, according to testimony. Police said she was wearing a bathrobe and slippers and waving an antique handgun with her finger still on the trigger.

She is accused of plotting the shooting of Herman Winslow because she was angry that their year-long romance was ending and that he had found another companion.
