Woman Accused Of Murdering Her Grandmother In “Revenge” Killing Appears In Court

A woman has been ordered to answer to charges from an Anderson murder. 64-year-old Teri Bigoski Mares was shot in the back in October of last year at her home in El Rio Estates on Riverside Avenue. 30-year-old Crystal Ann Odom is her granddaughter. She apparently had been recently kicked out of the house, and sought revenge. She had been staying at a home in Anderson, from which she allegedly stole a 45 caliber pistol, snuck into her grandmother’s home and lay in wait for her. Odom was arrested the following day at a Hilltop Drive hotel, allegedly in possession of the gun. She’s charged with first degree murder with enhancements as well as assault on another resident of her grandmother’s home. She returns to court April 11th.
