NEW ROADS - Sheriff's deputies arrested the grandson of a 91-year-old woman who was found beaten to death earlier this week.

Sheriff "Bud" Torres said Brandon Battley, 24, killed Beulah Morris. He faces murder charges in the case.

Morris was found dead in a pool of blood, covered with a quilt, by another family member Tuesday. Investigators say she was likely dead for 24 to 48 hours.

Details about how the investigation was cracked, and what led to the murder have not been released.
