New details have emerged about the life of Ridgeland murder victim, Sue Richardson, and her relationship with the man accused of beating her to death. 

Beverly Smith, who attended First Baptist Church of Ridgeland with Sue Richardson, say's Sue had dedicated her life to church, and her children, especially her son Michael that she adopted when he was two years old.

Michael was arrested Thursday and charged with murder in the beating death of Sue Richardson.

"She loved Barbie and Michael both very much," said Smith. "She was a very care-taking type person. She took care of a lot of people in the area."
