Last November, Eaton police were dispatched to the 300 block of East Somers Street on the report of a possible homicide, according to a spokesperson for the police department.

A police report obtained through a News Center 7 public records request stated Matheny told police that she went behind her grandmother while she was doing dishes and she held her head in the sink "until she stopped blowing bubbles."

Matheny told police she wasn't sure if her grandmother was dead yet, so she filled up the bathtub and held her under for 15 minutes until she stopped breathing and left her in the bathtub.
