Teen accused of killing grandmother with ball bat

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia teenager is accused of beating his grandmother to death with a baseball bat south of Atlanta.

Authorities say 18-year-old JeNorman Bland faces several charges, including murder.

Butts County Sheriff Gray Long told a local radio station that Bland is accused of chasing his grandmother through her house and repeatedly striking her with the bat. She was found dead inside her home around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Long said Bland told investigators he went to his grandmother's house asking for a ride to a nearby store, but she was getting ready for work.

It wasn't known early Wednesday whether Bland has an attorney. He was also charged with kidnapping, robbery and false imprisonment, and faces a first court appearance on Thursday.

The grandmother's name wasn't immediately released.
