Dylan Broughman Case
An 18-year-old man is under arrest on a murder charge after deputies said he killed his own grandmother because she had hidden his beer.
It happened in October on Ashridge Circle in Jacksonville. Deputies responded to a domestic disturbance call at a home located on the street.
They found the victim, Joyce Courson, sitting on the floor in a pool of blood. She was bleeding from her face, her right eye was split open.
Deputies also noticed a hole a size of a fist in the wall in the front room, and more holes in the living room and kitchen that looked as if someone had kicked them in, according to the arrest report.
Deputies talked to a witness Dylan Ross who told them that he heard the woman and her grandson, Dylan Broughman, 18, argue because she had taken his beer while he was in the shower.
She had hidden the beer.
The witness said he heard a few loud bangs and a few moments later Courson was screaming “Help! Help me!”
Dylan Ross found her in the room with the blood all over her face and he saw Broughman leaving the house.
After paramedics took her to the hospital she told the deputies that she and her grandson got into a fight.
During the argument, the teen became so upset, that he began to punch holes in the walls near the kitchen.
She said that as she was coming down the hall near the kitchen, he pushed her on the ground, held her down and began punching her in the face with a closed fist. She said he also began kicking her as she was on the ground.
When Broughman was arrested, he admitted to punching the wall and pushing the woman to the ground. He said he left after that.
He also told officers that when he gets upset he blacks out in rage and doesn’t remember what happens after that.
Courson died at the hospital from her injuries after surgery complications. The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled her cause of death to be complications of a blunt force head trauma.
The teen was charged with her murder.
