SCHENECTADY, N.Y. - A suspect is in custody relating to the death of an 82-year-old Schenectady woman, police say.
Schenectady Police say the suspect, whose identity has not been released, is a parolee who has been arrested and is being held on unrelated charges while being questioned on the homicide of Mary Greco.
Police say Greco was a retired nun and her neighbors describe her as a kind and caring person.
She was a frequent attendee of Saint Luke's Church on State Street.
The pastor at Saint Luke's tells NEWS10 Mary had a passion for helping
people. "How sad that a kind soul like her would meet such a violent
end," he said.
The investigation is ongoing.
