A Florida man allegedly beat his grandmother to death with a hammer

A Florida man is charged with second-degree murder after he allegedly beat his grandmother to death with a hammer on Wednesday.

Covered in blood, Anthony Michael Corrado, 34, allegedly asked a cleaner to clean up the crime scene, Fox News reported. The anonymous governess asked Corrado where his grandmother was, and he replied that “she was gone”, Law and Crime reported. The victim was in the bedroom and was wrapped in a blue tarp.

The housekeeper could hear shallow breathing, and she unpacked it, finding Corrado’s grandmother with a plastic bag over her head. Apparently Corrado told her not to take it off because she would have “blood everywhere”. At the time, Corrado’s grandfather was at the grocery store.

The housekeeper told the 34-year-old she needed to get cleaning supplies from her car. She left to alert the authorities. When authorities arrived at the Naples residence, they found a gruesome scene. A bloody hammer was found on the kitchen counter. The grandfather was found alive in a blanket with “numerous serious head and back injuries consistent with hammer blows.” He was airlifted to a nearby trauma center for treatment.

Police say Corrado had blood on his shirt, shorts, boots, both shins and forehead, Naples News reported.

Corrado’s grandmother had a restraining order against her grandson. Last year, he was released from his prison sentence for violating his parole.

“This individual is in our custody thanks to the quick response of deputies and the quick-witted reporter who was able to get out of the residence and alert law enforcement,” Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said.

Corrado is expected in court on June 12 for a preliminary hearing.
