Trial Of Man Alleged To Have Killed Grandpa Starts This Week

The trial of a Carrollton man alleged to have killed his grandfather then set fire to his home this past January is set to begin this week.
23-year old Anthony Vashern Prothro allegedly struck his 70-year old grandfather in the head multiple times with an exercise dumb-bell, while attempting to steal the man’s wallet.
Detectives say Prothro returned to his grandfather’s home multiple times over the next few days—before dousing the area in gasoline and setting a fire.
