(CBS/AP) CINCINNATI - An Ohio woman is accused of beating her 86-year-old grandmother to death and stealing her TV to sell it for drug money.

CBS Cleveland reports Aisha Sanders, 24, was indicted Thursday on aggravated murder and other charged in southwest Ohio.

The victim, Mary Muah, was found dead in her home on Dec. 20. The indictment states she died between Dec. 16 and Dec. 20, prosecutor's spokesman Greg Flannagan said.

Prosecutors said Sanders sold her grandmother's TV to get money for drugs and took her grandmother's car. Law enforcement officials found her in that car, which had run out of gas.

Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said in a news release, "The defendant robbed and killed her own elderly grandmother, in order to obtain money to buy illegal drugs."

Sanders remained in jail Thursday with her bail set at $1 million.

An arraignment hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 3 in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.
