An 18-year-old is being held without bond for the murder of an elderly woman in northwest Harris County. Frank Benitez was in court today. He's charged with capital murder in the death of Muriel Kirkpatrick.

Kirkpatrick was unloading groceries from her car Sunday afternoon, her apartment complex when Benitez allegedly attacked her. Prosecutors say Kirkpatrick threw a bag of groceries at him during the attack to try to get away.
