WEST DEPTFORD A 50-year-old woman was found slain in her West Deptford apartment late Wednesday.
Margaret Ann DePietro was stabbed multiple times, police said. Her body was found about 11 p.m. in the Grande at Kings Woods complex, near Kings Highway and Grove Road, when a family member and friend checked on her.
One of DePietro's adult sons ran out of the apartment crying after the discovery, said neighbor Jana Liles, 27.
"He was screaming," she said. "He was so upset."
Liles described DePietro as a motherly figure who occasionally chatted with neighbors and told them to put on hats or coats if the weather was cold.
