A Lenoir County woman won $1 million playing the lottery. 

Cherie Kittrell of La Grange stopped by the Save Mart of Lenoir on South Wooten Street in La Grange where she bought a $10,000,000 Colossal Cash scratch-off ticket.

Kittrell claimed her prize Friday in Raleigh.

She could choose between taking an annuity that has 20 payments of $50,000 a year or a lump sum of $600,000.

She chose the lump sum. After required state and federal tax withholdings, she took home $424,509.
