Andrea Lea Wilson, 26, of Bentonville was in court Wednesday for a bond hearing. She is accused of killing her grandmother and the bond was set at $750,000.

An Arkansas woman was ordered Wednesday to be held in lieu of $750,000 bond in the death of her 81-year-old grandmother, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

Andrea Lea Wilson, 26, of Bentonville faces charges of capital murder and tampering with evidence in the killing of Ruby Ross, records show.

Ross' body was found in her home in the 11000 block of Blue Jay Road in Pea Ridge last week. The medical examiner determined that Ross’ death was caused by blunt force trauma to her head.

Wilson was arrested Monday by Benton County sheriff's deputies.

Benton County Prosecutor Nathan Smith, citing the severity of the charges and the likelihood of Wilson's conviction, asked Judge Robin Green to order Wilson to be held without bond.

Jay Saxton, Benton County's chief public defender, represented Wilson at the bond hearing and requested a $100,000 bond be set.

Killing grandma gets no comments, but GenMac and his pack of racists were all over drug dealers shooting and robbing each other. Drug dealers over grandma? Sad world

Show her no mercy !

Unlike sympathizers of Black thugs, I will not rationalize her acts by blaming poverty or poor schools.

This happened in Bentonville.

Had this been "thug city" Little Rock the odds of it being a Black thug would be 97 out of 100.

Genmac; the thugs you speak of might kill you, a cousin, even a bad business acquaintance, but never their own grandmother.
