Man Confesses To Killing His Grandmother, Police Say

Fresno police say an elderly woman found dead on Tuesday, was murdered by her own grandson.

Travis Fendley was arrested on Tuesday for carjacking from his mother. Officers say he later admitted to killing his grandmother, 78-year-old Joyce Frazier.

The elderly woman's body was found that morning in her home near Shields and Miami avenues, the home where Fendley lived with her. Investigators say an autopsy shows she was strangled.

Police also say Fendley had planned to murder two other relatives, and has an extensive criminal history.
