DALLAS - Well the saying is “don’t mess with Texas” but maybe that should be changed to “don’t mess with a Texas granny.”
Margaret Jackson was at her daughter’s home, when she realized someone was trying to break in.
She looked through the blinds, and the would-be burglar tried to run away, but Jackson was able to stab him in the neck.
Police are still looking for the man.
