80-year-old dies after alleged beating from grandson
An 80-year-old man allegedly beaten by his grandson died from his injuries Friday evening.
Police believe 20-year-old Chris Craigwell severely beat his grandfather Morris King while on a drug-fueled rampage. King was put in the ICU at St. Vincent's Hospital Friday before succumbing to his wounds.
Neighbors say Craigwell ran out of his house after the beating, claiming his grandfather needed help after falling down the stairs.
Craigwell is already being held on $2 million bond for assault. Police expect him to face more charges Monday.
