YAKIMA, Wash. -- A grandmother was in court Thursday accused of trying to slit her granddaughter's husband's throat.

69-year-old Dalores Taylor is facing assault charges for an incident that happened at a Moxee funeral home.

Witnesses say was angry after learning that her granddaughter died of an overdose -- because she believed her death was the husband's fault.

Police say it was pre-meditated.

"She called him down to talk to him and then they left to talk away from the group and that's when the assault happened," said Chief Kisner of Moxee Police.

Yakima police are investigating the granddaughter's death as suspicious.
