(WMC-TV) - A woman was murdered with a hammer at a Hickory Hill apartment complex. Her body was found around 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Cheryl Jones, who was also known as "Precious", would have celebrated her 50th birthday soon. It is a party that will never happen now.

"Got a call to come over to the apartment and when we got here, found out that she had passed away," said Cheryl's father, Casel Jones.

Cheryl's family said she was shot in the head.

"She lived here with a gentleman. There's some indication there was foul play between the two, I don't know exactly," said Jones.

Cheryl's friends say she had a one-of-a-kind personality and she was full of life. They also say her life should not have ended the way it did.

"I know she's going to be missed around here cause we all looked out for each other," said her friend, Sharon Cleveland. "When she knocked, we knew to answer the door 'cause we knew she was looking out for us as well."
