Guide Rock, NE-- The two wanted for the murder of 68 year-old Virginia Barone were still in an Iowa jail Monday waiting to be brought back to Nebraska. An affidavit said Shelley Casterline admitted to stabbing Barone to death while her son, Andrew, watched.
Sheriff John Halferty from Jasper County, Iowa who said the Casterline's waved their extradition meaning it would be a quicker process to bring them back to Nebraska.
The Sheriff expected them to be brought back within two weeks.
It's been just over a week since Virginia Barone was killed after allegedly being attacked by Shelley and Andrew Casterline.
10/11 spoke with Virginia's best friend of over 20 years who spoke all about Virginia, or Gin as she was affectionately known.
"To sit with her was a piece of Heaven in a lot of ways and she would come off with the darnedest things," said Kathleen Fuller, Virginia's best friend.
Kathleen Fuller met Virginia Barone in Idaho over 20 years ago, and they lived next door in Guide Rock.
According to Fuller, Barone was an extremely kind person, but wasn't exactly a saint.
"She was wonderful. But there was times that that girl had a vocabulary that would make a lumberjack blush, and she knew how to use it. But she had a heart as all outdoors she would give you the shirt off of her back. And I have seen her stop and give people a ride that she did not know and to a destination she had no idea where they were going," she said.
Fuller said Gin was always herself, and wouldn't let others dictate her personality.
She said, "She dressed in ways and in things that people were a little embarrassed at times, not that she cared cause she didn't."
Many Guide Rock residents spoke of her fondness for yard sales and thrift stores. Something her and Kathleen enjoyed together.
"We would go somewhere and find out we didn't have enough room in the car to get back in because she had found treasures that she had to bring home," she said, reminiscing of times with her friend.
Virginia's son Ronald described his mother as a strong woman and a fighter.
Kathleen had one important message about her best friend.
She said, "She's not a victim. She'll never be a victim. To those of us that loved her, she will be strictly, Gin."
Gin could frequently be found watching the Weather Channel surrounded by her cats. Kathleen jokingly told 10/11 it would have been more appropriate to speak with the Weather Channel about her best friend.
