A teenager in Michigan is accused of killing his grandmother and then showing up to her home with other relatives just learning the news, authorities said.
Jordan Dow, 19, allegedly shot dead his 61-year-old grandmother, Lela Dow, at her River Rouge home, the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office said.
On March 30, Lela Down’s assisted living facility employer contacted River Rouge police and requested a wellbeing check after she failed to report for her shift.
According to Deputy Police Chief Dasumo Mitchell, officers found the woman deceased inside the home, and as her family gathered at the scene, the victim’s grandson arrived.
“He was reported to have been the last person to have seen her alive, and he was taken into our station for questioning,” Mitchell said, claiming the teenager said nothing about his grandmother’s death.
Lela Dow and her grandson lived together, and the two got along well, according to her son, WJBK reported.

Jason Dow faces one count each of felony murder and second-degree murder as well as two counts of felony firearm, the Press & Guide reported.
“No motive has emerged yet,” Mitchell said.
At the time of the murder, police said, Jason Dow was on a tether — a device used to electronically track a defendant — in connection to a criminal sexual conduct involving minors charge.
