    An 18-year-old Jacksonville man is behind bars and charged with killing his 69-year-old grandmother – over a can of beer.

    Dylan Broughan got into an altercation with the elderly woman, Joyce Courson, after she reportedly hid his beer while Broughan was in the shower on Oct. 10, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

    Imagine looking down and finding a pristine diamond ring lying on the sidewalk. That was how Glenn Weddell found a Vera Wang diamond ring one afternoon in Sacramento, California. But instead of keeping it, Weddell hunted down the distraught owner to return the ring in a happy reunion. His method involved posting a sign to a tree downtown and hoping for the best.

    A witness said he heard an argument and several bangs, followed by Courson screaming for help. She told police her grandson shoved her to the ground and repeatedly punched and kicked her before fleeing the scene.

    Courson was taken to the hospital, where she died eight days later. Broughan was arrested and initially charged with aggravated battery before having the charges upgraded following the woman's death.
