MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A man confessed to murdering his own grandmother at her Memphis home.

Police said Sol Holland choked and stabbed Bobbie Edinbourgh, 74, in the 1100 block of Lexington Circle.

Family members were in shock when they heard she suffered apparent stab wounds last week. Edinbourgh's son said he came to the house, noticed smoke inside, and then found his mother dead on the floor.

The family prayed outside of the home as police investigated, trying to understand who would do this to their loved one.

"She give you anything you want. She'd been my favorite aunt, I'm 48 years old," said nephew Albert Leake at the scene.

Edinbourgh had just battled cancer. She lived in the home with her grandson.

Holland was booked into the Shelby County jail on first-degree murder charges Thursday.
