A 51-year-old woman was found guilty of murdering her elderly neighbor in Needham, the Norfolk district attorney’s office said Thursday.
Tammie Galloway was convicted of first-degree murder for stabbing and killing Laura Shifrina, a Russian immigrant and retired scientist who lived in an adjacent apartment, prosecutors said. Galloway was also found guilty of armed robbery and larceny.
Shifrina was last seen alive on May 28, 2017, prosecutors said. Three days later, her daughter found her body inside her Linden Street apartment.
