Murder Tale Filled With Strangling, Poisoning -- Relatives Accused Of Killing Woman Who Didn't `Enjoy Life'

By Julie Emery

The daughter and the mother said they first tried to poison the 79-year-old grandmother, Suzine Van Sickle, by mixing her medicine with clam chowder.

But when she failed to succumb to the overdose and awoke the next day, the two women allegedly smothered her with a pillow, they told police.

They did it, they told police, because they felt she couldn't enjoy life anymore.

The murder, it turned out, was a family affair, according to court records. It was done by Van Sickle's daughter and granddaughter who took her from a nursing home and squandered her private funds, prosecutors said.

Yesterday, prosecutors filed first-degree murder charges against the woman's daughter, Jimmie Jean Shumway, 59, and grandaughter, Alexis M. Shumway, 28.

Bail was set at $500,000 each. Jimmie Jean Shumway is in the King County jail. The granddaughter was expected to turn herself in today, prosecutors said.

The bizarre tale of the grandmother who died Nov. 18 in her home, in the 4400 block of South Brandon Street, was unraveled this week.

Deputy Prosecutor Lisa Marchese said the two almost got away with murder.

``The police never would have learned about it if the granddaughter had not called police on Feb. 12 saying she wanted to report a murder,'' the prosecutor said.

The daughter, contacted by homicide detectives Monday, also confirmed the killing, saying the two concluded Van Sickle did not have the ability ``to enjoy life'' so they decided to kill her, according to the charges.

Marchese said the King County medical examiner also is looking into the death of Van Sickle's husband, George, who died ``under mysterious circumstances'' Jan. 13, 1990, in the presence of Jimmie Jean Shumway.

According to Alexis Shumway's account, Suzine Van Sickle had spent her last years in a nursing home after having hip surgeries. She also had a heart problem and brain seizures and required extensive care.

The two women had removed Van Sickle from a nursing home in October.

Alexis Shumway said she and her mother decided Nov. 17 to poison Van Sickle, according to court documents.

Jimmie Jean, after consulting the Physicians' Desk Reference book, decided to try an overdose of Dilantin, an antiseizure medicine.

Alexis described how they chopped up more than 50 pills and mixed them with clam chowder, which Jimmie Jean fed to Van Sickle, according to court documents.

But when Van Sickle was still alive the next morning, Jimmie Jean grabbed a pillow and put it over her mother's face, the documents say.

Van Sickle ``struggled for her life for about 20 minutes'' and tried to fight back, the charges indicate. Jimmie Jean then directed Alexis to ``hold down one side of the pillow so no air could seep in.'' The victim eventually stopped struggling, the prosecutor said.

Suzine and George Van Sickle had decided in 1974 to donate their bodies to science. Several hours after Van Sickle died on Nov. 18, when her face returned to a ``normal'' color, the university's School of Medicine was called, Alexis said. Police retrieved a sample of Van Sickle's blood and her ashes. The blood sample showed a level of Dilantin that far exceeded normal therapeutic levels.

Van Sickle, when examined by her physician Nov. 5, was in ``good stable condition'' and ``mentally clear,'' according to the charges.

According to Alexis, Van Sickle was removed from the nursing center because it had a lien on the Van Sickle home for outstanding bills. The personal banker for the Van Sickles invested more than $100,000 that Suzine Van Sickle received in a settlement of a lawsuit over her husband's black-lung disease, the prosecutor said..

A Deadly Secret She Could Hide No Longer -- Woman Reveals How She Helped In Killing Her Grandmother
By Julie Emery

For nearly three months, Alexis Shumway lived with a horrible secret - the murder of her 79-year-old grandmother.

When, on Feb. 12, she could hold in the horror no longer, she called Seattle police. While two detectives sat at the kitchen table of her Rainier Valley home - one of the officers stroking her pet cat, Athena - Shumway told the astonishing story of how she and her mother fatally smothered her grandmother, Suzine Van Sickle.

Alexis Shumway, 28, and her mother, Jimmie Jean Shumway, 59, were charged with first-degree murder Thursday in King County Superior Court in connection with the Nov. 17 death. The granddaughter called The Seattle Times on Friday and asked to tell her side of the story.

She said she loved her grandmother, but had been manipulated and cowed by her mother, Jimmie Jean, for years - including the morning of the slaying. Besides, the granddaughter said, her grandmother repeatedly had expressed a desire to die.

Jimmie Jean Shumway pleaded not guilty to the first-degree murder charge today. King County Superior Court Judge Patricia Aitken set a March 18 hearing on the charge. Aitken told the woman's defense attorney that he could raise the issue of Shumway's $500,000 bail at a later date.

According to court documents filed with the charges, Jimmie Jean Shumway, when contacted by police last Monday, also confirmed the killing, saying she and her daughter concluded Van Sickle did not have the ability ``to enjoy life'' so they decided to kill her.

Despite all this, Alexis Shumway does not consider herself a killer. When her attorney informed her that prosecutors would file the homicide charges, she recalled, ``I fell to pieces. I went out of his office bawling my head off. I cried all the way to the bus stop. I never thought I would be charged with murder. I thought it was all my mother's doing.''

The Van Sickle death sounds like something out of the tabloids. Was it a mercy killing? Was it money-motivated?

``It's kind of like a `Murder, She Wrote' case,'' said a Seattle homicide detective, who asked that his name not be used. ``It doesn't fit the usual profile of murder.''

Alexis Shumway readily admits she helped smash up about 50 pills containing Dilantin, an anti-seizure medicine, for the grandmother's clam chowder the evening of Nov. 16. She said she felt the grandmother would not eat the soup, which her mother had laden with spices, and in any case, did not think the concoction would be fatal. The granddaughter said her mother fed the grandmother the mixture, but Van Sickle lived.

The granddaughter said that when she went into Van Sickle's bedroom the next morning, she had no idea that murder was on the agenda. She had been holding her grandmother's hand. Then, she said, her mother grabbed the pillow and put it over the grandmother's face. She said the mother then directed her to ``hold down one side of the pillow so no air could seep in.'' She said she did as ordered, then let loose as the grandmother struggled for life, her legs kicking. Death came in 20 minutes.

Alexis Shumway said ``my whole life has been bizarre.'' She loved her grandmother, she said. ``We were best buddies. We'd go to movies together, dinner and shopping. She was a beautician, too. She paid my way through beauty college. She was glad to be here, and glad I was taking care of her.''

``Here'' is the Van Sickle family home near Columbia City that Van Sickle moved back to last October from a nursing home. The granddaughter quit another job to be a full-time caretaker.

``My mom was always critical of me, saying, `You're not taking care of grandma right,' '' the granddaughter added. ``All through my whole life I could never please my mother.

``My mom was afraid the nursing home would get the house. She would mention that once in a while and it worried me. I was adamant about defending my grandmother's wants and needs.''

According to Alexis Shumway, the nursing home had a lien on the home because of unpaid nursing-home bills.

Suzine Van Sickle, whose husband, George, had died in January 1990, turned 79 on Nov. 9. Van Sickle felt she had nothing to live for and had outlived many of her friends, the granddaughter said.

``She couldn't walk,'' the granddaughter said, recalling that the grandmother once ordered her to ``Get me a gun.''

``If I had a gun, I'd kill myself,'' she quoted her grandmother as saying.

``I bought the Dilantin,'' the granddaughter said, telling her grandmother: ``If you do want to go that bad, I'll put the pills by your bed.''

But Van Sickle did not take the pills. And after she survived the intended poisoning, Jimmie Jean Shumway began ``crying on my shoulder,'' the granddaughter said.

The daughter had never before talked about suffocating her mother, the granddaughter said. The daughter ``kept saying `she can't talk. She's probably had strokes. She'll probably be on life supports,' '' the granddaughter recalled.

``It's like she drew on my love for my grandmother,'' she said. ``She knew how much I cared for her.''

The granddaughter said she entered the bedroom and found her mother ``was on a rampage to do it (murder). At the beginning, I thought it was a merciful act, but toward the end, when my mother kept bugging me about holding the pillow down, I thought `this is wrong.' But I felt powerless. I felt I couldn't do anything to stop it.''

The granddaughter said her mother swore her to secrecy about the murder, but she eventually told two friends, then got a stern warning from the mother not to tell anyone else.

``I was losing weight. I couldn't sleep. I was thinking of suicide because I couldn't live with this burden. It was just too heavy.''

The granddaughter said she called 911 at the urging of a boyfriend.

Relatives Sentenced For Murder -- Daughter, Granddaughter Get Total Of 55 Years

By Julie Emery

Suzine Van Sickle was a retired beautician who loved to read, sew, grow flowers and take photographs. In her later years, she pored over flower books and crocheted afghans.

Three years before her murder at the hands of her closest relatives, she and her husband, George, had received a $100,000 settlement from injuries he suffered on the job. She also received Social Security, got his pension when he died and benefited from Medicaid.

But at the time of her death, authorities found just $5.41 in two bank accounts, a zero balance in another and a fourth account that was overdrawn.

Yesterday, a King County Superior Court judge imposed sentences totaling 55 years for the professed loved ones who poisoned her with doctored clam chowder last fall and then smothered her with a pillow.

Judge Frank Sullivan imposed an exceptional sentence of 35 years on Van Sickle's daughter, Jimmie Jean Shumway, 59, of Federal Way, who had power of attorney for her mother. Shumway had "essentially pillaged a substantial future" for the 79-year-old Van Sickle, the judge said.

He called the case a "classic case of extreme vulnerability of a victim," noting that Van Sickle, in the months before her murder, needed 24-hour care, was incontinent and could not fix her own food.

Alexis M. Shumway, 29, a granddaughter who lived at the family home in Columbia City, was sentenced to 20 years.

"They (the daughter and granddaughter) made the decision that her life was no longer of value," Deputy Prosecutor Kerry Keefe said before the sentencing. "Their motivations were greed and their own selfishness, rather than loving care and comfort of their own flesh and blood."

Van Sickle died Nov. 18, 1990, after a 20-minute struggle, during which the two women held a pillow to her face after first trying to kill her with poisoned food. Neither spoke at the sentencing and showed little emotion. Their attorneys said they will appeal.

Deputy Prosecutor Lisa Marchese said before the sentencing that the nursing home where Van Sickle once stayed had notified the state Adult Protective Services that she might be in peril after the daughter and granddaughter moved her home.

The removal was made despite the pending appointment of a legal guardian, Marchese said. Kathleen Burge, a social worker for Adult Protective Services had written Jimmie Jean Shumway two months before the murder, asking for details on Van Sickle's finances and how the two women planned to care for Van Sickle.

The daughter never responded to Burge's letter. Burge testified that she did not pursue the matter and did not telephone Van Sickle's home or visit her.

"The nursing home did everything right," Marchese said. "The signals were all there for APS, including $40,000 in fees owed the nursing home. The APS dropped the ball."

Keefe and Marchese had asked for lesser punishment for the granddaughter because she reported the murder to Seattle police.

Before the confession, Van Sickle's doctor had classified the death as from natural causes.

A neighbor of Van Sickle, Freida Hein, remembers how Van Sickle for years made her own clothes and was talented in photography.

Hein, 76, said that a year before Van Sickle's murder, she had gone to the house to visit, bringing Van Sickle a birthday cake.

"They didn't even tell her it was her birthday," Hein said.
