It’s not clear how the suspect was related to the victim. However, a friend of Ruben Sanchez said he is the suspect’s step-great-grandfather.

The victim’s grandson reportedly heard commotion in the residence around 5:30 a.m. and found his grandfather severely beaten and badly bleeding.

He was taken to County-USC Medical Center, where he later died.

Sanchez, who was arrested Tuesday, faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in state prison. Prosecutors recommend $1 million bail. His arraignment was postponed until Dec. 5.
