Chilling video: A grandmother shows no remorse

A California grandmother accused of shooting her son-in-law to death claimed she would kill him again, footage from initial questioning revealed.

The family of Cynthia Cdebaca, 65, who is accused of killing Geoward Eustaquio, 53, was dubbed “ghetto grandma” as a term of endearment. the victim’s sister told attorneys.

However, Cdebaca allegedly shot Eustaquio 15 times on the morning of February 11, 2014, after he told her she looked “ghetto.”

“I got dressed and he said, ‘you can’t go like that.’ He told me you look ghetto,” Cdebaca said in the video. Eustaquio then supposedly told her she couldn’t go to her granddaughter’s spelling bee.

The grandma admitted to investigators how she wounded Eustaquio while he attempted to flee and begged for his life.

“Oh good, good, good, good, good. Oh thank you, thank you,” Cdebaca is heard exclaiming with her hands up in the unsettling video. She also claimed Eustaquio was “so mean” to daughter and she was fed up with him abusing her family.

The video also showed the 65-year-old saying goodbye to her family before going to jail. At one point, Cdebaca asks her youngest granddaughter for a hug.

“No, you killed my dad,” the girl said.

Prosecutor Tracy Prior testified that the 65-year-old reloaded the .38-caliber, five-shot revolver — which she purchased two weeks before the murder — three times. Prior also claimed she went to Denny’s, gambled, and went to a coffee shop after the murder, KSWB reported.

“Did you check on him after you shot him?” detectives asked.

“I didn’t care. I would do it again,” Cdebaca responded.
