roubled grandmother kills grandsons
NORTH STONINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Debra Denison’s struggles with mental illness were well known in her family, and when she wanted to pick up her grandsons from day care to mark the older boy’s birthday, mother Brenda Perry hesitated.
Denison not only wanted to pick up 2-year-old Alton and 6-month-old Ashton, but she also wanted to do it alone, the boys’ great-grandmother said. Perry told her mother the boys were too much for her to handle, but Denison insisted.
“She was apparently very convincing,” said Marcia White, the boys’ great-grandmother on their father’s side. So Perry asked her to take along another relative. She didn’t — and now a family and a town are wondering whether anything could have prevented what came next.
