A 17-year-old has been charged with first-degree murder after authorities say he beat his 91-year-old neighbor and set his house on fire.

George Steward, who lives on Bentler in Detroit, was also charged with felony murder and arson, said Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

Steward is accused in the killing of Paul Monchnik, a retired TV repairman, in the early hours of Monday morning. Police have said that the assailant had entered the elderly man’s home intending to steal, but that an attack soon followed — and then the assailant, to cover his tracks, ended up buying gasoline and lighting the home on fire.

When authorities were called on reports of a fire at about 3 a.m. Monday, they found Monchnik with a head injury and severe burns all over his body. Monchnik was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The word ‘heinous’ does not even begin to describe this crime,” said Prosecutor Kym Worthy in a statement.

Monchnik was a widowed father of three who lived by himself and had been in the house for 65 years.
