Man, 32, accused of killing his grandmother, 70

Posted: Updated:

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A northeast Georgia man is accused of killing his 70-year-old grandmother.

Hall County sheriff's deputies responded to a home in the Gainesville area around 2:30 p.m. Friday in response to a report of a woman being assaulted.

Hall County sheriff's deputy John Marshall said paramedics transported Lula Bell Howard to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, where she later died.

Sheriff's officials say Howard's grandson was later arrested and charged with her death.

Police say that the grandson -- 32-year-old Ronnie Quqomeki Rucker of Gainesville --was booked into the Hall County jail and was awaiting his first court appearance. It wasn't known early Saturday whether Rucker has an attorney.

No details about a possible motive were released late Friday.
