Man (and I use the word loosely) Blinds His Grandmother in Argument Over Money
An unhinged Long Island man blinded his grandmother by gouging out the 78-year-old woman’s eyes — then shrugged off the attack when questioned by police, officials said Wednesday.“ This is an extremely disturbing case,” Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini said while announcing the indictment against 30-year-old Michael Grief of Sayville.“ We will take all appropriate action to make sure that not only his family is safe, but that the public is safe from this dangerous individual.” Grief is facing 25 years in prison for the Feb. 19 assault. Prosecutors said that he was arguing with his grandmother at their home at 7:45 p.m. because she wouldn’t allow him to use her debit card.
