Pain of daughter's death too much for mom

In a tragic story, the mother of a nursing student whose life was brutally ended last year has been found dead. 24-year-old Megan Sharpton was raped and killed, her body found set on fire along a road in Franklin County last year. In the months since, 47-year-old Kelly Sharpton of Tullahoma struggled with the loss of her daughter. And on Friday, the mother took her own life in a Chattanooga hotel. Kelly was a graphic designer at Arnold Air Force Base. Her daughter’s accused killer, Donnie Jones Jr., faces first-degree murder, kidnapping and rape charges, and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.
