Henry is strangled to death; Janet barely survives. A year later police arrest Janet’s former stepdaughter Lela Whiteley [sometimes spelled Whitely] and her husband John for the attack: Lela erroneously thought that by killing Janet, she would inherit her house.)..CONTACT Carla Hotvedt at SILVER IMAGE® Photo Agency and Weddings 352.373-5771 or
