BARTLESVILLE — A judge has set a preliminary hearing for a 21-year-old Bartlesville man accused of killing his grandmother and ransacking her home.

A local newspaper reports that Brandon William Capps is due in court Feb. 7 for a preliminary hearing. He's been charged with first-degree murder, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, larceny, selling stolen property and knowingly concealing stolen property.

He's accused in the Oct. 31 death of his grandmother, 81-year-old Clara Jean Hammer. Authorities say Hammer was found dead on her living room floor with a baseball bat by her side. Authorities say her home was ransacked and her furniture was destroyed.

An affidavit alleges that Capps was driving Hammer's car when he was pulled over by officers.

Capps remains in the Washington County jail on $1 million bond.
