Trial Date Set for Woman Accused of Killing her Mom, Ditching Body Near Ramona
A Sept. 2 trial date has been set for Ghazal Mansury, a Serra Mesa woman accused of killing her 79-year-old mother and ditching her body on the Barona Indian Reservation near Ramona. 

In October, Ghazal Mansury pleaded not guilty to killing Mehria Mansury, who she shared a home with.

When the victim went missing Sept. 23, relatives immediately asked detectives to look into the possible involvement of her daughter, who has a criminal history related to thefts, said San Diego police Lt. Jorge Duran last year.

The mother's body was later found lying face-down underneath a tree in an open area on the grounds of Barona Indian Reservation, Duran said. Hours later, police took her daughter into custody for questioning.
