Cypress man accused of killing grandmother appears before judge

New information was revealed in the case of a Cypress man accused of killing his own grandmother.

HOUSTON – New information was revealed in the case of a Cypress man accused of killing his own grandmother.

Nathan Billingsley, 21, who charged with murder, faced a judge Tuesday morning.

Deputies said Billingsley’s 67-year-old grandmother, Hazel Billingsley was found inside her home on Longwood Meadows in Cypress. They added that she had been shot several times.

Prosecutors said the suspect had threatened to kill his grandmother and his mother in the past. 

On Sunday, family went to check on Hazel when they saw blood and called authorities.

Deputies eventually found the Billingsley hiding in the woods with a firearm and his girlfriend.

That girlfriend told investigators she had been outside when she heard gunshots. Then when she went inside, and saw the suspect wrapping the victim in a blanket.

She said he threatened her life, too.

Nathan Billingsley told investigators he accidentally shot his grandmother multiple times in the living room.

On Tuesday, the judge upheld his $200,000 bond and set two new conditions – Billingsley cannot have any contact with his girlfriend or his mother.

As far as a motive, so far no word on that but family says that he does have a history with drugs.
