MACON, Ga. -- A Macon woman has died after police say her 22-year-old granddaughter attacked her, knocking her unconscious.

Authorities say 62-year-old Shirley Green was placed on life support at the Medical Center of Central Georgia and later died after last week's confrontation.

Bibb County arrest warrants state that Kierra Thomas punched Green in the head and kicked her in the stomach. She has been charged with murder, aggravated assault and cruelty to children.

The cruelty charge reportedly stems from allegations that Thomas shook her 2-year-old daughter and held her to a sofa in a choke hold.

Jail records show Thomas is being held in the Bibb County Jail on $28,690 bond. They do not indicate whether she has an attorney.
