CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A year after her daughter was shot and killed in a west Charlotte apartment, a mother is making a plea for answers.
"It's been really hard. I think about it every day," said Dana Drayton as she fought back tears. As she spoke, Drayton held a fistful of pictures of her daughter, Ondrea Stevenson, who was killed as she slept on the sofa in a friend's apartment on West Boulevard.
"I was at work and I get the phone call saying that my daughter had been murdered, which I didn't believe it," Drayton said, recalling the morning in December 2013 when Stevenson was hit by bullets that pierced the window of an apartment on West Boulevard and hit her.
