Teen accused of grandmother's murder to face judge

Posted: Updated:

A St. Clair County teenager accused of smothering his grandmother to death has had his preliminary hearing delayed.

The hearing was scheduled for Tuesday for 19-year-old Joseph Batson, but it has now been moved to February 19. Police say Batson suffocated 59-year-old Mavis Batson with a pillow last November.

The only motive released was that the teenager was angry with his grandmother.
