BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a vehicle belonging to an 83-year-old woman found slain in her Bismarck home has been recovered in Fargo and the victim's son has been arrested for vehicle theft.

Bismarck police say 47-year-old Dean Grenstiner was arrested Wednesday and changed on Thursday with theft of a motor vehicle.

Ann Grenstiner's vehicle was found abandoned outside of a bar Wednesday.

Authorities believe the vehicle was stolen when Grenstiner was killed. Her niece found her body Tuesday afternoon in a bedroom of the home where Grenstiner lived alone. Police say Grenstiner had "obvious trauma" but no apparent gunshot wounds. An autopsy was completed Wednesday but police did not immediately release details.
