A 17-year-old boy from Fresno was arrested Sunday for allegedly murdering his great grandmother.

Fresno County Sheriff deputies responded to a home in Fresno for a disturbance Sunday around 7:40 p.m. after a caller reported a disturbance.

On arrival, deputies found 74-year-old Lupe Suarez with stab wounds. Suarez was unconscious. She was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The suspect left the home before deputies arrived but returned a short time later. He was detained without a problem.

The juvenile had lived there since November 2016 after moving from Las Vegas.

The name of the 17-year-old has not been released since he is a minor.

Anyone with any information on this case is asked to call Fresno County Sheriff’s dispatch at 559-600-3111.
