SALT LAKE CITY, Utah   –   A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and other crimes in the death of his 74-year-grandfather whose body was found by firefighters after a fire at his home.

Police say 28-year-old Maxwell Wolcott was arrested after allegedly telling investigators that he forced his way into Peel’s house and stabbed him.

An arrest document says he returned a short time later to douse his grandfather’s body in lighter fluid “with the intention of destroying evidence.” It’s not clear if Wolcott has a lawyer.

Neighbors reported the fire after hearing screaming and seeing flames.
