A candlelight vigil was held Thursday night for a Cobb County teacher who police said was shot to death last week by her mother-in-law. 

Friends of Jenna Wall gathered in Lost Mountain Park to remember her. She was a kindergarten teacher at Kemp Elementary School.

The shooting happened around 11:30 a.m. at the victim's home on Wyndham Wood Drive. Investigators said Elisabeth Wall, the mother of the victim's estranged husband, put her grandsons, 7 and 8, in a pick-up truck, and then they said she shot Jenna inside the home.

Wall, 63, was arrested a few hours after the shooting and is charged with murder. Officers said she and her son, Jerrod Wall, were in the home when they arrived.

Police said Jerrod Wall was not involved in the shooting and only came to the scene after his mother called him at work. Wall is an investigator with the Paulding County District Attorney's office.
