“I am being framed,” Sherry Lee Heffernan, then 55, said while being led out of court in October 2021. Authorities had just charged her in Ocean County, New Jersey, with murdering her father, John “Jack” Enders, 87, and his longtime live-in girlfriend, Francoise “Frenchy” Pitoy, 75.

But now, more than two years later, a grand jury has convicted her of carrying out the stabbing and shooting deaths. Authorities said she was upset over her father kicking her off his will and not letting Heffernan, a real estate agent, sell his house.

Prosecutors said that an RV belonging to Heffernan, now 57, was seen on surveillance footage driving down the Long Beach Island Bridge on the early morning of Sept. 29, 2021. Then, she went on foot toward her father’s home. With an orange bag and clothes “too large” for her, she hopped a backyard fence, and later that day, drove her RV back over the same bridge as before.
