Woman Faces Trial for Beating Death

7-21-06 A Maysville woman will go to trial in September for the beating death of her mother-in-law.

Nancy Gilstrap is charged in Garvin County with first degree murder in the death of Rosemary Avila last year.

Authorities found Avila's body was found in the bedroom of the home she shared with Gilstrap after Gilstrap called them saying she'd killed her mother-in-law.

Avila had been hit in the head 19 times with a hammer.
