A 21-year-old Allentown woman has been charged with allegedly stabbing her grandfather to death, the Lehigh County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.
Chene Mejias is facing charges of criminal homicide after the body of her 65-year-old grandfather, Wilson Mejias, was found early Tuesday inside a first-floor apartment the two shared at 841 S. 12th St.
According to an affidavit of probable cause, the Allentown Police Department shortly before 2:30 a.m. received a call from police in Bronx, N.Y., who reported a woman came to their department and said a man had been killed inside an apartment at that address.
Allentown police went to the home for a welfare check. There, they found Wilson Mejias’ body in a bedroom. He had been covered in bedding, towels, sheets and plastic bags, investigators said.
