After 67-year-old Dollie Mae Evans was shot to death, neighbors recalled the woman known as "Grandmom" as a kindly presence on her block in Holmesburg. That was one face. But the one that got Evans and 57-year-old roommate Ruby April Thomas killed, according to court testimony Tuesday, was that of a woman who sold crack cocaine from her house in the 4700 block of Vista Street. It was the lure of the cash and drugs that Evans purportedly kept in her purse that allegedly tempted her 25-year-old ex-con boarder, James Mears, and another man on Aug. 23 to stage a robbery that ended in two slayings.
