The ninth-grader, Keshawn Perkins, 15, pummeled his grandmother with a lamp and stabbed her in the neck, head, and body with a kitchen knife. He then wrapped her body in a blanket and dumped it in a sewer trap behind her house, before taking off with her purse.

A neighbor spotted the gore-spattered teen dragging something through his backyard and then fleeing, the Tribune said. Perkins was arrested a short time later.
Prosecutors said that Perkins admitted to the savage attack, saying his grandmother had yelled at him for skipping school and he beat her with the lamp “until she shut up,” the Tribune reported.
