On Friday, a Georgia grand jury indicted a suspect in last year’s slaying of an elderly woman who was found fatally stabbed in her garage.
Eleanor Bowles’ son said Antonio Brown, 23, was formally charged with 11 counts, including first-degree murder. Bowles’ son discovered the 77-year-old’s body at her Buckhead home on December 10 while was visiting for the holidays.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, video footage showed Brown in Bowles’ stolen Lexus which was later located in Dekalb County. Bowles is believed to have been killed when she interrupted the alleged car theft.
At the time of his arrest, Brown was jailed in Fulton County on charges of murder, aggravated battery, elder abuse, possession of a knife during the commission of a felony, and hijacking a motor vehicle.
Police had also identified Brown as a suspect in a robbery at a liquor store that occurred less than a half mile from Bowles’ slaying.
Court proceedings were delayed in early January as Brown underwent a mental evaluation, per reports.
