LAUREL, Miss. (AP) - A Laurel man has been charged with capital murder in the death of an 85-year-old woman at a trailer park where they both lived.

Police Chief Tyrone Stewart tells The Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1mDIlIu ) 48-year-old William E. Dean was charged Tuesday with capital murder.

The body of 85-year-old Nora L. Peters was found in her home Monday at the Twin Pines Trailer Park. Authorities say Peters worked for the trailer park, collecting rent from other tenants.

Authorities say the woman was stabbed and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Stewart says Dean also lived at the trailer park.

Stewarts says a possible weapon and some of the woman’s property was found in a nearby garbage bin. He says robbery is considered a motive in the case.
