VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A woman accused of killing her grandmother was found not guilty on Wednesday.
Now, her family is looking to the future.
Fiveash and detectives with the Valdosta Police Department began investigating.
"When they said not guilty, I was pleased," said Batch.
"It came out for the best for everybody. She can go on with her life and we can just go on with ours and no hard feelings," said Batch.
Batch said these last few years have been really tough with the death of both of her parents within a couple years of each other.
On Thursday, Batch said she feels like a weight has been lifted off her shoulders.
"I feel relief that you know, in my head it was really difficult, but now it's over and it's okay," said Batch.
Batch became emotional when talking about what's to come for her family and what it'll be like the next time she visits her parents' graves in Puerto Rico.
"When I go see my parents, you know it's a normal thing. It won't be like you're dead because you were killed. It's good to know it was an accidental death, that means a lot," said Batch.
Shealy believes the evidence shown by the state medical examiner proves Colorado died from strangulation.
But, after more than a year of investigation, the case is now closed.
