Case Delayed For Mental Evaluation

A hearing for a Lexington man, accused of beating up his grandfather, who later died, was delayed.

26-year-old Franklin Arnett faces assault charges for the fight back in December.

A judge delayed Arnett's hearing for a few weeks until a mental evaluation for him could be completed.

Investigators say Franklin got into an argument with 78-year-old Taylor "Rocky" Arnett over taking out the trash.

Franklin has pleaded not guilty to assault.
