ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — An intruder didn't count on an 82-year-old woman living alone being an award-winning bodybuilder with nerves of steel.

Willie Murphy was getting ready for bed Thursday at her home in Rochester, New York, when a man pounded on the door and said he needed an ambulance, Murphy told WHAM.

She clobbered him with a table, poured shampoo in his face and was beating him with a broom when police arrived.
