Officials file murder charges in bludgeoning death of 81-year-old woman
Officials filed murder charges Thursday after an 81-year-old woman died from being beaten.
Judy Annis lived in the 1000 block of Twyckenham Drive and police found her lying in a pool of blood just before 4 a.m. on September 23. Court documents say officers also found 68-year-old Randy Scott in the house, with blood on his clothes.
Court documents say two witnesses saw Scott in the house with Annis in the time before police arrived. Scott was arrested at the scene and charged with assault. Annis was hospitalized after the attack, but succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday.
Scott is now charged with murder and possession of methamphetamine. It is unclear why Scott was at Annis’ house or how the two knew each other. A GoFundMe page set up by Annis’ family says Annis was a “neighborhood granny” who opened her home to anyone in need of help.
