Cold Claims Another Life

Cold weather has claimed the life of an elderly Meridian woman. 69-year-old Ann Penny Nichols was found Friday morning.

A neighbor asked police to do a welfare check after not seeing her for a couple of days.

Coroner Clayton Cobler said it was colder inside the house than outside. He said she apparently has no family.

Cobler said there was no heat in the dwelling, which had some damage to the roof and ceiling, and broken windows the resident had tried to patch herself.
