Lincolnton, NC – The Lincoln County Grand Jury returned a true bill of indictment of First Degree Murder Monday (June 8, 2015) against a grandson in the stabbing death of his 77 year old grandmother.

Detective Lt. Tim Johnson developed Chadwick Allen Bean, 40, of 3187 Rabbit Ridge Road, Morganton, NC as the prime suspect following an exhaustive investigation into the death of Lucille Miller Punch of 482 Beth Haven Church Road, Denver, NC.

Deputies were dispatched to the residence Sunday afternoon (February 22,2015) after the victim’s son-in-law found the victim deceased with multiple stab wounds. He had gone to the residence to carry out her trash and noticed the sliding glass door open. He went inside and found the woman lying on a hospital style bed and called 911.

Ms. Punch was last seen alive on Saturday afternoon (February 21, 2015). The investigation took detectives to multiple jurisdictions as they followed up on possible leads in the case. Detectives viewed an autopsy at Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem on February 24, 2015 that determined the cause of death to be the stab wounds and trauma to the body.

Chadwick Bean was a prime suspect early in the investigation but investigators had to put together enough evidence to charge him. He will be transferred to Lincoln County from the North Carolina Department of Corrections where he is serving time for a probation violation. Detective Lt. Tim Johnson will serve the warrant on Bean Wednesday morning. He will then have his first appearance in Lincoln County District Court.

It is the only murder in Lincoln County in 2015.
