Police in Chikwawa are keeping in custody Paul Flyton 37, of Mandele village under Traditional Authority Ngabu in Chikwawa District for murdering his granny.
Chikwawa PRO Dickson Matemba said during the night of May 21, 2021, Flyton had some disagreements with his relatives.
As a result, he became enraged and thereafter set ablaze five houses.
Consequently, his granny Erra Nadzikhale, aged 80, of the same village died inside after failing to escape from the burning house.
The suspect had been at large until on May 31, 2021 when well wishers tipped police off his whereabouts.
He will appear in court soon to answer charges of arson and murder respectively.
