Vigil to be held for BK woman allegedly killed by landlord

(09/15/10) EAST NEW YORK - A vigil will be held tonight for a Brooklyn woman who was allegedly killed by her landlord.

Patricia Wilson, 55, was known as "Miss Pat" by many members of her community. About 200 people are expected to gather outside of her home in East New York to remember her.

Police say Wilson's landlord, Jacqueline Wesley-Rosa, 49, shot her in the chest during a dispute over rent. Neighbors say the two fought frequently. Cops say she was arrested in July for harassment and possession of stolen property.

Rosa is being held at Rikers Island and is charged with second-degree murder. Her next court date is in December.
