CARLYSS, La. (AP) - Southwest Louisiana authorities say a 42-year-old man is accused of killing his 89-year-old grandfather with a baseball bat.

KPLC-TV (https://bit.ly/1UmGVnh ) reports that Joseph Stutes has been arrested on a charge of manslaughter in the death of Andy Phipps.

Calcasieu (KAL-kuh-shoo) Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers says that Stutes allegedly was trying to take jewelry from Phipps’ unconscious body when deputies arrived about 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

It was not clear whether Stutes has an attorney who could comment on the matter.

The American Press (https://bit.ly/1skpKK3) reports that arrest records show that Stutes has been arrested in the past on drug charges and charges of violating parole and a protective order.
