TEXAS CITY, Texas (AP) - Police say the granddaughter of a blind
woman found stabbed to death in her Texas City apartment has been
charged in her murder.
Sgt. Joe Stanton says 19-year-old Cheretta Smith was arrested at
her Galveston home Friday.
She was being held Saturday on $250,000 bond in Texas City jail.
A jail official did not have an attorney listed for her.
Fifty-seven-year-old Theretta Gayden Miller was found stabbed
several times Feb. 13.
Smith had told police she went by her grandmother's apartment to
check on her and discovered the body. Stanton told the Galveston
County Daily News that a man who was with Smith called his mother
who then called police about the discovery of the body.
