Teen Allegedly Beat Grandmother To Death For Refusing To Take Him To Buy Cigarettes


A Georgia teen was arrested for allegedly beating his grandmother to death with a baseball bat Tuesday when she refused to take him to the store to buy cigarettes.

JeNorman Bland, 18, is facing charges of murder, kidnapping, robbery and false imprisonment.

He is accused of chasing his grandmother through her home and repeatedly striking her with a bat, Butts County Sheriff Gray Long told WSB Radio.

The grandmother, who was not identified, was found dead in her home near Jackson at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Bland doesn’t live in her home, but came over to ask for a ride to a nearby store, Long said. She refused because she was getting ready to leave for work. Bland allegedly went inside the home, got a bat, and began chasing her with it.

He stole his grandmother’s car after the incident and was later arrested by Griffin police.

“He confessed to the murder,” Long said.

Bland is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
