Monyuett Hinson was charged with capital murder in connection to the killing that happened in Bessemer, Alabama, according to CBS 42.

In September, Hinson and the victim, 76-year-old Alverner Blanks, were neighbors and arguing over money, according to the report. Hinson then hit Blanks with a space heater and left the area.
