He Viciously Beat His Grandmother - His Reasoning Is Despicable

An 18-year-old in Florida is facing murder charges after beating his 69-year-old maternal grandmother to death. According to reports, the argument started because she hid hiss beer.

Joyce Courson didn't want her teen grandson, Dylan Broughman, to drink because he's under the legal age of 21. When Broughman went into the shower, Courson grabbed his beer and hid it.

Dillon Ross, who was living in the home with the grandmother, says he heard two bangs, then he heard Courson screaming for help. He ran in and found her on the floor, and caught Broughman fleeing the scene.

“She was just covered in blood,” Ross reported. “There's blood everywhere, all over the floor, and she was bleeding profusely from her head, and the house was trashed. Holes in the walls and whatnot.”

Courson was rushed to the hospital where she was diagnosed with multiple face injuries. She died from her injuries eight days later. Her death has been ruled a homicide.

According to police, the grandson punched holes in the wall, then pushed his grandmother down on the floor and began punching her in the face.

Most of the family is stunned and says Broughman was very 'soft spoken' and never caused trouble. The boy's paternal grandmother told a different story. She told News4Jax the young man had a number of issues for a long time.

“The state has to understand what has happened to this child for six years. He always had an anger issue. I told them that,” said Evelyn Stepka. “How does your anger issue dissipate if you're living in this situation?”
