BEND, OR (AP) -
Police say a Bend woman used a pillow and her body to smother her grandmother to death.
KTVZ-TV reports that 45-year-old Angela Judd was arrested in early February for the Dec. 31 death of 92-year-old Nada Bodholdt.
According to court documents, Judd confessed to killing her grandmother during a counseling session. The documents say Judd told her counselor that she had two glasses of wine before visiting her grandmother's retirement home, where she told Bodholt she loved her and then put a pillow over her face until she died.
Court records say Judd told the counselor she knew Bodholt was in her final days and was concerned that the woman would suffer.
A woman at Judd's home told KTVZ that the family does not want to comment on the case.
