Temple University ‘stunned’ by attacks on Voorhees mother and daughter

Voorhees – The Philadelphia school said Tuesday that a 22-year-old woman who was killed in an apparent attack by her father was a student at Temple University.

She added that the mother of the murdered woman, who was taken to hospital in stable condition after the assault, also had links to Temple Temple.

“The Temple University family is very surprised and sad,” school officials said in a message to the community.

She added that Catherine “Katie” Clemene, who was fatally beaten at her Round Hill Street home, was a student at Temple College of the Liberal Arts.

The letter indicated that her mother, Sherry Kleiman, works at the Lewis Katz College of Medicine in Temple.

“This is a senseless tragedy affecting the entire Temple community,” the letter from Stephanie Ives, dean of students, and Sharon Boyle, associate vice president of human resources, read.

“Our thoughts and deepest sympathies extend to those closest to Catherine and Sherry, especially their families, friends, faculty, colleagues, and classmates,” they wrote.

The incident sparked expressions of sadness on social media.

“She robbed us of a great spirit very early on,” Darius West of Voorhees said in a Facebook post accompanied by a photo of Katie Kleiman’s graduation from Eastern Regional High School.
