One of the women’s neighbors also told the station that he saw Brennan, who he characterized as a «little bum,» to confess the investigators at the scene.
Then they put his fists on it and seated it on the sidewalk. I couldn’t believe what I was listening to. It took a couple of seconds for it to sink, and I say, ‘ Wow, she just admitted it! ‘ said neighbor Mike Bennett to the station.
Bennett told KSAZ that Simmons ‘ death has knocked him down, and other residents in the complex. «She was just a sweet lady,» said Bennett. The lady was just a beautiful old woman. Her daughter lived there, but she did not seem to be the friendliest. » It is unclear whether Brennan, who will face murder charges in the first degree, has hired a lawyer.
