A man has been arrested in connection with the death of his 83-year-old grandmother, police said Thursday.
Ryan Garcia, 27, 1116 Columbia St., was charged with three counts of felony aggravated battery. He is accused of attacking both Margaret Garcia, his grandmother, and his uncles, Robert and Ralph Garcia.
Las Vegas Deputy Police Chief Christian Montaño said that given that Margaret Garcia has died, the charges likely would be upgraded. That could mean that Ryan Garcia could be facing an open count of murder.
