An Atlanta 14-year old was in court Thursday after stabbing his grandmother 57 times over a DVR dispute.

Charles Price III murdered his grandmother, Mary Price, on April 18 in her home. The woman died of "multiple sharp force injuries of the head, torso and upper extremities" around 9 a.m., the Fulton County Medical Examiner told WSB-TV Atlanta.

According to court testimony, the boy killed the 76-year old woman over a television dispute. He then went to school, where a teacher and a police officer saw him. The Therrell High School officials initially thought he had injured another student.

Allegedly, Price told them, "I killed it," and that he liked it. There are also reports that Price made other strange statements to people at the school.

When officers entered the grandmother's home on the 1600 block of Fairburn Road, they found her body and a trail of blood from the kitchen to the living room. They also found two broken knives.

Diana Juhan, a neighbor of Ms. Price, was shocked by the news.

"It's very sad. You know someone who lives next door and find out that happened to them," she told WSB-TV.

Ms. Price's son is an Atlanta police officer, although officials say that the officer is not the father of the suspect.

Charles Price faces homicide and multiple other charges, and will be tried as an adult. He is being held without bond, and will appear in court again later this month.
