Charged & Arrested

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said deputies found the 56-year-old woman with “an ax sticking out of her head” when they responded to a call about an attempted murder at Silver Lake Mobile Home Park in St. Petersburg just after 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The woman, identified by WFLA Tampa as Lisa Rogers Eaton, was miraculously alive and was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for life-threatening injuries.

The report quoted the sheriff’s office as saying that Eaton was in stable condition at the hospital, but her younger sister told the station that she was preparing to take him off the ventilator on Saturday.

Donna Voye said family and friends gathered to be with Eaton to pray and say goodbye to the woman she said she would “help anyone.”

“She will give you anything you want,” Voye said, including letting Michael Doughtery, 40, stay with her and her husband after he lost her job.

“We don’t get it,” Voye said. “We can’t understand it because she wouldn’t hurt anyone.”

“No family should get a call like the one we got telling us that their family member was brutally attacked like our little sister was,” Voye said.
