LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A 91-year old woman says she's reached a deal to move out of a dilapidated house sitting in the middle of a planned new student apartment complex near the University of Kansas.

Georgia Bell said Wednesday she has agreed to sell her home of 70 years to Chicago-based development group Here, LLC. If the deal hadn't been reached, the developer had planned to build a five-story building on three sides of Bell's home.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Bell would not release terms of the deal. In March, developers told city officials they had offered Bell $600,000 for a house with a value of about $93,000.

Bell refused that deal, saying she wanted to stay in the home where she raised six children.
