  • Follow Crime & courts

Theodore Cornell Lockett was indicted by a Richmond County grand jury this week on murder charges stemming from the brutal beating death of his 92-year-old grandmother in January.

Lockett, 21, is accused of breaking into Dorothy Lockwood’s home at 1311 Apache Lane then beating the woman on the head with a glass table and a microwave oven, according to court documents.

Afterward, authorities said Lockett called his mother and told her he was coming for her next.

He was arrested at the scene and faces charges of murder, burglary and terroristic threats.

I wish he could get the death

I wish he could get the death penalty. His Grandmother's death was senseless and harsh. May God have mercy on his soul.

There are two sides to

There are two sides to everything, Dorothy didn't deserve to go out like that, it was senseless and harsh but I believe if she hadn't been so hateful and mean she would still be here. Think about what would cause a person to do something like that. Don't judge, you don't know Theodore and you didn't know Dorothy Lockwood. I'm both Mother and daughter.
