(Meriwether County, GA/cbs46.com) — An elderly woman that was attacked during a home invasion has died after spending weeks in the hospital.

According to family members, 83-year-old Dorothy Dow had been on a ventilator since the incident occurred at her home in Lone Oak just south of Grantville on August 10.  

Dorothy Dow Meriwether County Sheriff’s Office officials said the suspects forced their way into her home, beat her, poured something on her and set her on fire.

“Once they entered the home, one individual entered her bedroom where she was already in bed,” said Meriwether County Sheriff Chuck Smith.

He says one man started beating Dow with a gun, breaking several bones in her hand and forearm. She was then set on fire by another suspect. She was able to put the fire out with a nearby bottle of water and call 911.

“With one hand broken and her arm broken in four places, she pulled the top off of the gallon of water, poured it over her head and put out the fire,” said Dorothy’s daughter-in-law Beth Dow. “She then drug herself into the den on her broken arms to get to her cellphone to call 911. She said, ‘I thought they were going to kill me’. They told her that she was never going to see her sons again.”

Dow had several surgeries due to her injuries which included broken bones and severe burns.

Justin Grady of Grantville, Cortavious Heard of Grantville, Shanquavious Cameron of Hogansville, Mina Ellery of Newnan and Angel Harmon of Newnan face a range of charges, including attempted felony murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery, first-degree criminal attempted arson, first-degree burglary and battery.

  1. This wasn’t a robbery, or they would have grabbed the goods and left. They tortured this woman for one reason, and one reason only; she was white.

    What other reason could they have possibly had for doing this?

    1. Most likely that’s true.

      Whatever they thought was the reason for their barbarism, it’s a shame this woman wasn’t armed and ready for them.

    1. Not necessarily. That fact that someone rightly opposes the pigs and their police state doesn’t mean he supports common criminals, especially savages like these.

  2. This is a great article.
    But look at the bright side.
    We now have more employees in the prison industrial complex to make our consumables at bargain prices.
    The new economy.
    Prison labor.
    Spend Less and Live better….
    At Prison-Mart.

  3. Them F’ niggers deserve prison. They’re animals and belong behind bars. Actually, a needle of death juice would be fitting.

    1. Cmon..Mil….
      That almost sounded anti nig-semetic.
      When are we gonna get some cracker home invasion articles.
      I’m really starting to get the feeling that this a closet kkk white supremacist site.

      1. Not a patriot site?
        I thought we made it clear, niggers, like patriots, come in all colors.
        It is indeed enlightening to see how an open forum, free from political correctness brings out those inner feelings.
        All American nationals, regardless of the pigment of their skin, are my brothers and sisters, but I will not sidestep, nor make allowances for any outrage.
        If you disagree with someone on the site, that is one thing, but when you try to blanketly condemn all, you are guilty of your own accusation, aren’t you?

    2. One more time folks, PLEASE! Animals do not do this sort of thing, not even to kill for food. Stop making this comparison! ALL animals are above this behavior. That said, if these thugs really are the guilty parties, euthanize them.

  4. Yet another good reason to keep an AR with a 30 round magazine by the bed. Cocked and locked, ready to deal with the dregs of society.
