PROSPECT HEIGHTS - Police are learning more information about the Brooklyn man accused of burning an elderly woman in an elevator Friday. Jerome Isaac, 47, has been charged with first-degree murder and arson in the death of Deloris Gillepsie, 73. A family spokesperson says Isaac performed odd jobs for Gillepsie, and that there was a dispute over how much she owed him. She said she felt threatened by him, but was never able to get an order of protection because she only knew his nickname, according to the spokesperson. Neighbors say Isaac lived with his brother, and that he normally collected bottles from recycling bins.Elevator murder suspect ordered held without bail
