A New Jersey man has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his grandmother to death on Wednesday, prosecutors said.
Police made the discovery on Wednesday morning after they were called to a Salem, N.J. home.
Inside the home, Salem police said they found 71-year-old Catherine Wilson lying on the floor with multiple stab wounds, according to a news release sent to Fox News from prosecutors in Salem County. Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene.
Prosecutors said an ensuing investigation led to the arrest of Wilson’s 27-year-old grandson, Deon Wilson.
He faces several charges, including murder and unlawful possession of a weapon, prosecutors announced.
A motive for the alleged stabbing was not immediately known.
Salem is about one hour from Philadelphia, Pa.
