THE BRONX - The daughter of an elderly woman killed by a neighbor says she doesn't understand why her mother was targeted.

Police say 70-year-old Ethel Parish was found fatally stabbed inside her apartment in the Murphy Houses. They arrested Tyrone Ragland, 50, for the act Tuesday.

Parish's daughter, Hope Klein-Adino says Ragland used to help her mother with odd jobs for money. She says the two may have had a dispute over payment before the attack.

Ragland is charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
