Teen ‘killed stepmom by pushing her down the stairs and giving her multiple skull fractures after argument’


A TEENAGER has been charged with murder after allegedly pushing his stepmother down the stairs and causing multiple fractures to her skull.

Austin Perot, 18, was arrested following a reported argument with Malgorzata Bozek at a home in Marietta, Georgia.

Officers from the Cobb County Police Department were sent to an address at around 10.39am on February 8.

The home is located on Granville Circle, around five miles from the city centre of Marietta.

Bozek was taken to a hospital and Perot was charged with aggravated battery.

The charge was upgraded to one count of murder after Bozek succumbed to her injuries the following day.

Two arrest warrants said Perot had assaulted Bozek by pushing her "down a flight of stairs", the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Perot is now being held without bond at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.

Police are yet to release details of what led to the argument between the two.
