    Teen Charged With Killing His Grandmother Over Beer
    Dylan Broughan

    An 18-year-old Jacksonville man is behind bars and charged with killing his 69-year-old grandmother – over a can of beer.

    Dylan Broughan got into an altercation with the elderly woman, Joyce Courson, after she reportedly hid his beer while Broughan was in the shower on Oct. 10, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

    A witness said he heard an argument and several bangs, followed by Courson screaming for help. She told police her grandson shoved her to the ground and repeatedly punched and kicked her before fleeing the scene.

    Courson was taken to the hospital, where she died eight days later. Broughan was arrested and initially charged with aggravated battery before having the charges upgraded following the woman's death.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
