GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - The stepfather of a Pennsylvania woman who police say was tortured, beaten and fatally stabbed tells The Associated Press that the victim was "mentally challenged."
Robert "Bobby" Murphy said Friday that 30-year-old Jennifer Daugherty had mentioned the names of some of the suspects as her "friends" in recent months.
Murphy says he was the last family member to see Daugherty alive. That was on Monday, when he took her to a bus stop in Mount Pleasant so she could go to Greensburg.
That's where police have charged six people who they say fed the woman vegetable oil, spices, detergent, urine and medications before she was killed.
