Police are looking for a male suspect after a break-in at a house in southwest Houston that left an 82-year-old woman dead.
Police say the intruder beat Margaret Marie Gage with his hands after she tried to intervene as the intruder was kicking her husband in the head. Police Sgt. C.E. Elliott says the 84-year-old husband was treated at the scene.
Elliott says the couple's dog began to bark just before 9 p.m. Thursday and the husband went to open the back door to let it out when the man forced his way in.
The couple's daughter, Loa Glenn, tells KPRC-TV of Houston that the intruder went straight to her mother jewelry and made off with it.
