Mother’s Day will never be the same for a Woodlands family, who lost their mother just hours before Mother’s Day [Sunday], in a shooting in Ashburton.

It is alleged Delana Carmen Cader Rawlins (41) was shot dead by a man known to her, following an argument with him, after leaving a party on Saturday night.

Rawlins left a family function in Ashburton and was traveling with a family member along Wally Hayward Drive when they were allegedly stopped by the man, who had been following them.
