A New Hampshire man has been accused of beating his mother to death inside of her home while she was “screaming for her life,” according to authorities.

Around 9:45 p.m. on July 6, authorities responded to a 911 call regarding a possible domestic disturbance at a home in Hudson, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.

Once at the residence, first responders found 57-year-old Christine DeGiacomo inside suffering from a “traumatic injury,” officials said.

She was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency medical treatment, but she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.

Shortly afterwards, her son, 27-year-old Grant DeGiacomo, was arrested in connection with his mother’s death. Officials said Grant killed his mother by “repeatedly striking her in the head.”

An autopsy determined Christine’s manner of death was homicide and the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head, chest and abdomen, authorities said.

One of Christine’s neighbors, who shared a wall with her townhouse, told The Lowell Sun that he could hear an argument taking place the night of the attack. He said it seemed like a typical argument, but then “all the sudden it went from that to us hearing banging.”

The neighbor said it sounded like Christine was “screaming for her life,” adding that “it escalated just like that, and I was probably on the phone with 911 within 30 seconds,” The Lowell Sun reported.

On Sept. 15, officials announced a grand jury in Hillsborough County District Court returned an indictment against Grant DeGiacomo on two alternative counts of second-degree murder in the death of his mother.

Authorities accused Grant of killing his mother “under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of human life.”

DeGiacomo was arrested in January 2020 and charged with reckless conduct for allegedly getting drunk and firing a handgun inside the same home where his mother was killed, officials said. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to complete a substance abuse program.

Grant is currently being held without bond and is scheduled to appear in court for his arraignment on Sept. 28, officials said.
