A DeKalb County man has been indicted on charges that he killed his grandmother and hid her body, a spokeswoman for prosecutors said Friday.
Gregory Williams, 35, is charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, concealing a death and theft by taking, Yvette Jones said in a news release.
The charges are in connection with the death and disappearance of 78-year-old Millicent Williams.
She was reported missing July 27 from her Decatur-area home. Inside the home, there were signs of a struggle, including blood, and her car was missing, authorities said.
Later that day, Gregory Williams was found in her car.
The woman’s body eventually was found alongside I-20 in mid-August.
Investigators believe the man attacked his grandmother with a knife and then disposed of her body with her car, according to arrest warrants.
