A man allegedly killed his child’s 62-year-old grandmother Saturday afternoon in Gwinnett County – and police a day later said they still don’t know the motive for the murder.

Mr. Wolf Griffin, 35, was charged with felony murder and aggravated assault in the death of Mrs. Peggie Robinson, according to Gwinnett County police.

Around 1:05 p.m. officers were called to their headquarters on Hi Hope Road in Lawrenceville to meet with a man about suspicious activity at another address, police spokesman Cpl. Troy Tobler said.

The man also requested a police car go to the home in the 2900 block of Evergreen Eve Crossing in Dacula. There officers found the body of the woman, Cpl. Tobler said. Police have not said how the woman died.

“At the time of her death, Ms. Robinson was acting as a third party intermediary and had just dropped off Wolf Griffin’s child at the incident location on Evergreen Eve Crossing when she was suddenly attacked for unapparent reasons,” Cpl. Tobler said.

“Although it was clear that the suspect and victim knew each other, motive has not been determined.”

The man who met with officers at police headquarters was another resident in the home with Mr. Griffin and he was the child’s grandfather.

Mr. Griffin remained at the Gwinnett County jail Sunday without bond.
