96-year-old Shrewsbury woman finally returns home

After being delayed abroad, 96-year-old Carlotta Niles is back in the Garden State.

The Shrewsbury woman was fortunate enough to have accommodations while awaiting a plane home.

Niles says she has not been deterred by the experience and plans to go to Russia in the fall.
