1010 WINS’ Al Jones speaks with a niece of the victim

Family members are now dealing with a trouble tragedy — losing a loved one and seeing another, 26-year-old Christopher Jackson, charged with a crime.

“We remember good things. Unfortunately, the way that things are unfolding, it’s very stressful,” Little’s niece told 1010 WINS’ Al Jones.

Her niece said Little was an angel, who always wore a smile and was “ready to welcome people and just love on them.”

“She was a great woman,” she said.

Family members said the woman raised Jackson since he was a little boy and are still trying to come to grips with what actually happened.
