Sheriff: Teen suspect in grandma's death
BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Authorities in southwestern Idaho say a teen will likely be charged in connection with his grandmother's death, which is being investigated as a homicide.
The Payette County sheriff says 18-year-old Tyler Naughton is being held on a felony theft charge after he was arrested late Sunday for driving his grandmother's pickup, which was reported stolen. The body of 60-year-old Sherryl Kenney was found early that morning in a home south of Fruitland.
Sheriff Chad Huff confirmed Tuesday that Naughton, who was identified as a person of interest in the death over the weekend, was now a suspect in the investigation. Huff said the teen would likely be charged by the end of Tuesday in connection with Kenney's death.
Naughton is being held in Adams County, where he was arrested.
