A Georgia man is accused of placing his grandmother in plastic bags and locking her in a freezer while she was alive — and she remained there for months until the remains were found.
The Floyd County Police Department in Georgia arrested Robert Keith Tincher III, 29, last week, according to the Rome News-Tribune.
Police said they were notified about the case by a concerned family member, according to the News-Tribune.
Tincher put his grandmother, Doris Cumming, 82, alive in plastic bags after she fell, according to the News-Tribune. She was put in the bags towards the end of 2021. Tincher then dragged her body in the home and placed her in a large freezer.
Cumming had several bones broken as she was dragged through the home.
Tincher told police that Cumming’s back broke as he forced her into the freezer, according to the News-Tribune.
Police said Tincher had no provocation for the incident and gave no life-saving efforts, the report noted.
Floyd County police charged Tincher with felony malice murder, concealing the death of another, aggravated battery and felony murder. He was also charged in connection to a 2018 incident where he was accused of conspiring to kill his then-wife.
