Portland, Oregon (CNN) - An Oregon teen is accused of bludgeoning his great grandmother to death and stealing her car.
Police found 71-year-old Jacqueline Bell's body inside her Portland area home over the weekend.
Jodah Cain and a friend led officers on a high-speed chase along interstate 84 before they were stopped.
Officers ran a check on the vehicles plates and found the car did not belong to either of the men in the vehicle.
That's when investigators went to the woman's home and found her dead.
Neighbors were shocked by the news.
“I'm in my mid-70s now and I say, what did she do to deserve that? She's done some good things.”
Investigators say they don't have a motive for the killing.
It's believed Cain and his friend Micus ward planned to drive the stolen Lexus to Kansas City, where they both used to live.
