HAMPTON, Va. – Police arrested an 84-year-old Hampton man for the murder of his 65-year-old neighbor.

David Junior Priddy is charged one count of murder and one count of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, according to a report on WTKR.com.

Priddy shot and killed Katherine Ann Fleming  on July 10 while Fleming stood on her driveway outside her Shawen Drive home, according to police. Priddy also lived on Shawen Drive.

Fleming’s daughter said the two had been neighbors for about 30 years.

“I just don’t understand it,” Katherine’s former husband Sam Fleming told WTKR.com.  “I never thought something like that would happen to her.”

Sam Fleming said his ex-wife was often threatened at work.

“Every day she would come home and tell me about those death threats, and I would say ‘quit your damn job and let’s just move somewhere,” he recalled. “She wouldn’t do it. She loved her job too much.”

Hampton Police said investigators do not believe Katherine’s murder was a random act of violence, but have not yet released details about what may have lead to the shooting.

    Another crazy white Republican, since Manalishi blame everything on democrats. I doubt it very seriously that he’s a democrat.

      Check the backlog Tammy, your way behind schedule the ratio. I cant say because he is out of the metro/tri-city area. it’s a standard for baseline statistics collection. Furthermore, i seldom assign a race,,that’s for the little people.

      Ignorant? Oh yeah, that’s code for “i wish my father was Frank Marshall Davis too.” You must have learned it from you plastic bobblehead messiah.

        Not at all Richie. Just a “top down” analysis of a word used as a pretentious rational when a real justification cannot be articulated. Generally, this lack of articulation is based on an obviously bogus or fraudulent ideology and therefore a primal knee jerk defense mechanism takes over. Hence the word “ignorant” is delivered via an auto synapsis. Or the said user of this word just wishes his father was Frank Marshall Davis too like his plastic bobble head messiah.

        Not sure which it is? You’ll have to ask the next person that uses it. Just be careful as the user usually has a limited vocabulary and questioning their use of the opinion based word tends to challenge their place in the “upside down world”.

        It is evident that your vocabulary is more pretentious and specious than functional. No doubt a reflection of your true self. You don’t impress anyone with any intellect. Why do you continue to blather incessantly? You must enjoy being the bore that readers find ugly and ignorant.

        Ahh yes the “ignorant” word comes out again? So, do tell, what’s wrong with your own father? Not good enough? “No doubt a reflection of your true self.” I hope you didn’t think long for that either. “You must enjoy being the bore that readers find ugly and ignorant.” But you just had to chime in unprovoked proving my “primal knee jerk” theory as factual. I could have done it without you, but i sincerely appreciate the vindication.
        Bon apetit.
