Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- The family of a 75-year-old woman stabbed to death at an Atlanta senior care apartment complex is suing the facility's owners.

Mary Oliver's daughters said Tuesday they are suing Ohio-based National Church Residences. They say her death could have been prevented.

The company told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ( ) it was not aware of any problems at the complex. A spokeswoman declined to comment on the lawsuit, saying the company hadn't seen it.

Police say complex resident Geary Otis fatally stabbed Oliver and wounded another resident June 17. Otis is in jail on murder and aggravated assault charges.

Oliver's family says the apartment building was overrun by prostitution and drug abuse. Her daughters say things began to get worse at the complex after the current company took it over in 2007.
