When she learned that her grandson was charged in the shooting deaths of his father and another adult male she cried out "I knew this would happen". "They were too hard on (the boy). I knew (the boy) did it. He spent the night in my bed cuddling up to me. I had a feeling he did it. If any 8-year-old boy is capable of doing this it's (the boy)."
According to police the boy said he was spanked 5 times the night before the murders for not bringing home some papers from school and said "his 1,000th spanking would be his last."
The boy was temporarily released from jail so he could spend Thanksgiving with his mother.
A hearing in the case is schedule for December 8th.
