October 7, 2013 (Ramona) – A woman accused of murdering her mother has entered a not guilty plea.  The body of Mehria Mansury, 79, an Afghan immigrant, was found  in a field near San Vicente and Wildcat Canyon Road east of Barona Casino last week. 

Mansury was a resident of Serra Mesa. She  was last seen September 23 and was reported missing on September 25. Relatives told authorities that they feared her daughter, who has a criminal record, could be involved, ECM news partner 10 News reported.

Ghazal “Gazelle” Ybarra Mansury and her boyfriend were questioned after the search led authorities to find the body.  Mansury was later arrested and charged with first degree murder. 

Fingerprints were used to identify the body, which had been reportedly damaged by animals.  An autopsy did not reveal cause of death; further tests are pending.
