Irene Gray was found dead on Oct. 13 at a home in the 900 block of N. Amburn Road. Authorities said they were responding to a call of a welfare concern when she was found with “injuries consistent with gunshot wounds.”

On Monday, police stated that Sherene Lavett Washington-Harper, 54, was arrested on Oct. 20 for a murder warrant.

While a motive and details behind how Washington-Harper was tied to the scene remain unknown, authorities said she is being held on a $250,000 bond.
