A black woman has been charged with killing her grandmother and stealing her TV to sell it for drug money
Aisha Sanders, 24, admitted beating to death 86-year-old Mary Muha - blaming the murder on her addiction to crack cocaine, say police. The pensioner was found dead by her grandson at her home in Washington Township, a Dayton suburb of Ohio. Police believe that she was killed three days earlier. The African-American suspect was asleep when officers picked her up in her grandmother's car which had run out of gasoline on Interstate 70. Sheriff Phil Plummer revealed that the victim was hit over the head a number of times with a yet-to-be-named object. Sanders had been living off and on at her grandmother’s house and had pretty much drained all the finances, said Sheriff Plummer. He believes that Sanders went into a rage and beat her grandmother because there was no money for drugs. A Montgomery County grand jury in Dayton has indicted the black woman on one count of aggravated murder with prior calculation and design and one count of aggravated murder during the commission of an aggravated robbery. Sanders was also indicted on two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of tampering with evidence. She is being kept in custody after bail was set at $1 million.
