COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - An arrest has been made in connection with the death of an elderly Columbus woman. 

According to Columbus police, Peggy Gamble's step-grandson, 42-year-old Angelo Short, has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault, obstruction of police, and theft by taking of a motor vehicle valued at $3,000. 

Short was arrested and taken into police custody at an apartment complex on Lawyers Lane Tuesday around 6:20 p.m. 

Gamble, 83, was found dead in her home on 8th Street on Monday. Her 1988 Toyota Corolla, which was taken from her home was found later Monday night.  

The charges of aggravated assault and obstruction stem from a crime unrelated to Gamble's death. 

Short has not been charged with murder but is a person of interest in Gamble's death. He is expected to appear in Recorder's Court on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 9 a.m.
