To her roommate, Iris Ross was more than just a friend — she was family.
“We used to say that she was the Stewart to my Martha, and I was the Martha to her Stewart,” Lushanya Echeverria said. “We were a good team.”
On Christmas Day, Ross was going to a condominium near 16th Street and Highland Avenue to pick up her children and bring them back to their house about a mile away for their holiday party when police say she and the children were shot and killed by her former husband.
Police took Anthony Milan Ross into custody after a six-hour standoff. The 11-year-old boy and 10-month-old girl were found dead in the home.
