OXFORD, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a 42-year-old man has been arrested in the stabbing death of the live-in caretaker for his grandmother in Oxford.

Police said 60-year-old Susie Ann Hester’s body was found around 3 a.m. Saturday when Davey Allen requested that officers check on his grandmother’s home.

Investigators say Allen implicated himself in Hester’s death and was charged with first-degree murder. He is being held at the Granville County jail without bond and it wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.

Police say Allen’s 91-year-old grandmother, who has dementia, was not harmed.

Investigators did not release a motive for the killing.
