Woman Hears Something Strange Coming From The Alley - Situation Takes Tragic Turn

An Ohio grandmother died a hero after she saved her grandchildren from a violent sex offender. The man attacked her grandkids and the woman stepped in to protect them. She gave her life for them.

Candy Arthurs, 45, caught a neighbor trying to lure her grandchildren Kourtnee (8) and Jeremy (7) into an alley. Kristopher Amos, 29, asked the children for help in finding his missing drone. Arthurs followed them into the alley and confronted Amos.

Amos had a knife. His plans apparently foiled, flew into a rage and stabbed Arthurs in the chest, puncturing her heart. Jeremy was also stabbed, but less seriously.

The scuffle between Amos and Arthurs gave the children just enough time to escape. They ran to their mom, Amanda Gibson, covered in blood and telling her to call 911.

Amos, who was on the sex offenders list since 2010 for enticing a child in a public shower, is facing assault and murder charges. Arthurs died from the injuries sustained in the fight. Jeremy recovered.

Gibson says she feels 'like my heart has been ripped out.' She is so grateful to her mother for saving her children. Arthurs was apparently a very loving, doting grandmother who proved she would gladly give her life for her grandkids.
