BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A police officer has testified that a 74-year-old Michigan woman charged with murder in the shooting death of her 17-year-old grandson came out of their condo with her hands raised and screamed "I murdered my grandson."
West Bloomfield Township Officer Derrick Kassab said Monday at the start of Sandra Layne's preliminary examination that she surrendered to officers after they heard three shots inside the home and yelled for anyone inside to come out.
Kassab testified in Bloomfield Township District Court that Layne was hysterical and kept asking officers how her grandson was doing.
Jonathan Hoffman was killed May 18 at the condo he shared with his maternal grandparents in West Bloomfield Township, northwest of Detroit. His parents live in Arizona.
