Was this the Mrs. Coyne case in Southie?
>>Moments after Timothy Kostka slashed the throat of a beloved South Boston grandmother, he cashed in her winning lottery ticket at the corner store, then used the ill-gotten gains to buy heroin in Roxbury, prosecutors said in court yesterday as they detailed the chilling murder that has Southies City Point community reeling.
It only took a few minutes, Suffolk Assistant District Attorney Ursula Knight told South Boston District Court Judge Michael Boldan during yesterdays emotional arraignment. At 10:03 a.m., he was at Jimmys Korner, cashing in the lottery ticket, and at 10:06 a.m., he started making calls for heroin.
>>Coyne, who had known Kostka, described her attacker to her son, said Knight. She later died at Boston Medical Center at 10:34 a.m., according to a police report.
Knight said Kostka, 26, of South Boston went to Coynes East 7th Street home to steal some expensive fishing equipment that belonged to Coynes son, Richard.
