MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio – Ohio court records say a 12-year-old boy and his grandfather argued and fought over doing chores in the days before the 80-year-old was killed.
The boy has been charged as a juvenile with murder in the death of Fowler Agenbroad last August. The boy is now 13.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/2mGnmLo ) reports that court documents say that two days before Agenbroad was found unresponsive they had a violent argument, and police were called.
Records say the boy struck Agenbroad with metal and Agenbroad hit his grandson with a cane.
No charges were filed, and Agenbroad agreed to let the boy return home.
Officials say the boy denied charges of murder and reckless homicide at a hearing Tuesday in Hamilton County.
The Associated Press generally doesn't identify juveniles charged with crimes.
