A WOMAN who made it to 85, who once held children and grandchildren in her arms, faced barbaric violence in her final moments in this world. Police say that someone rained an incomprehensible fury down upon Regina Brunner Holmes before she died yesterday, beating her, stabbing her and slashing her throat inside a first-floor bedroom of her Mount Airy home. The killer - or killers - made off with Holmes' 2007 Toyota Corolla, and possibly not much else. Her house, on Roumfort Road near Ardleigh Street, wasn't ransacked and there was no indication that an intruder had forced his way inside, police said.
