BOSTON (CBS) – Boston police arrested a 25-year-old man on Thursday in the death of a 65-year-old grandmother from South Boston.

Police charged Adam Joseph Cassino with the murder of Barbara Tagen.

Back on Aug. 27, Tagen’s body was found in a home on Dorchester Street. Autopsy results showed she died due to blunt force trauma.

Tagen was a social worker, and helped many people get their lives back on track. Police say when she tried to help Cassino, it backfired and he ended up killing her.

Cassino was arraigned Thursday in South Boston District Court. He is being held without bail.
