A former Bostwick resident has been indicted by a Cobb County Grand Jury for the murder of his grandfather.

According to a story published Friday in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Casey Collins, 30, and Sarah Cook, 23, were both indicted in the stabbing death of 78-year-old Edward Smith.

Collins and Cook were indicted for malice murder, felony murder, four counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and for concealing the death of another, the story states.

Collins and Cook were both arrested in May, arrest warrants stated, and charged with the stabbing death of Smith. Warrants alleged that the pair stabbed and strangled Smith, took money from the victim and then drove the victim’s 1997 Ford Ranger pickup truck for several days, with the body inside the truck, before abandoning the vehicle.

Both Collins and Cook remain incarcerated in the Cobb County Jail without bond, the story states.
