ANGOLA, IN — A sign that refers to Lane 200E Lake James as “Wilma Ball Memorial Way” will soon be placed on private property at the entrance to that edition.
Neighbors and friends are organizing the sign in her honor. Ball was stabbed and killed at her home on that street in 2021.
Matthew Hoover pleaded guilty in the killing of Ball at a hearing this week after agreeing to a plea deal from the Steuben County Prosecutor’s office.
A sign honoring Ball also hangs on a tree along Ln 200 E Lake James several feet away from Ball’s home. Neighbors said there’s a sense of closure and relief for the community, especially with this week’s court proceedings.
Hoover’s sentencing hearing is set for October 4th.
