Georgia teen charged with killing her 66-year-old grandmother

A Georgia teen has been charged with murdering her grandmother, authorities said.

Alisha Kianna Pompey, 17, was arrested early Monday after Fayette County deputies found the teen’s grandmother, 66-year-old Dorothy Pompey, dead in the family’s residence at the Four Seasons Mobile Home Park, The Citizen reports.

Deputies were sent to the location for a medical call, but investigators determined domestic violence factored in the elderly woman’s death, Sheriff Barry Babb told the newspaper.

The teen was taken into custody later that morning without incident. She lived at the home with her grandmother and other relatives, Babb said.

Pompey was later charged as an adult with felony murder and aggravated assault in her grandmother’s death, the sheriff said, adding that no additional information was being released as of Tuesday.

A message seeking additional comment from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office was not immediately returned Thursday.

Pompey, of Fayetteville, remains held without bond at the Fayette County Jail, records show. It’s unclear if she’s hired an attorney.
