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.
