On the afternoon of April 16, 93-year-old Margaret Wood returned to her friend's home to retrieve her keys and sunglasses she had left after visiting earlier that day. When she returned, she was met by her friend's caretaker, William Sutton, who allegedly threw her off her friend's porch.

Margaret was hospitalized with serious injuries, including a fractured skull, a broken nose and hemorrhages.
