Police say grandson stole wallet after killing

Posted: Updated:
MARIETTA, Ga. -

Authorities say the grandson of a 78-year-old man stole his wallet and then used his truck -- with the body still inside -- to drive around metro Atlanta on a shopping spree with his girlfriend.

Edward Smith of Lilburn was reported missing Sunday. His body was found Tuesday night on a road in Mableton.

Police say Smith's grandson, 30-year-old Casey Ryan Collins, and 23-year-old Sarah Elizabeth Cook, both face charges of felony murder. Arrest warrants obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/12XgQxK ) allege that Cook stabbed Smith in the chest with a knife as Collins used a belt to choke him.

The warrants say Collins then removed the dead man's wallet from his pocket, and the two used the pickup to go shopping while the body was still concealed in the truck.
