    This is what happens when you’re an adult aged male and you live with your grandma. Now he will have a new place to live, unfortunately we have to pay his room and board the rest of his ruined life.

    I hate to think, someone could just murder their own grandmother. Though, I know some people can. If this guy’s guilty, I hope he pays with his worthless life.
