Police are now saying a grandmother was murdered the night her house was set on fire. 

Fire crews were called to Fernwood Avenue on Tuesday night. Winnie Butler, 51-years-old was found dead inside. Her grandson, 22-year-old Donkish Lesane, was charged with setting the fire. Thursday in court, prosecutors said Lesane had blood stains on his clothes when investigators arrived to the scene.

But so far, no one has been charged with killing Butler.
