    MO - Alicia Ball, 63, beaten to death in her Joplin home, 13 Dec 2011

    Authorities in Joplin have made an arrest in the murder of a Joplin grandmother who was babysitting when she was killed.

    About eleven Tuesday (12-13-11) morning authorities were called to the home of 63 year-old Alicia D. Ball at 3222 S. Garrison to check the well being of the woman. When officers arrived, they found the back door kicked in, Ball bludgeoned to death in her bed and her two year-old granddaughter unharmed.

    The daughter of the victim, had a protective order against the accused, but he hadn't been served. She made a phone call to the residence just before the alleged assailant was seen leaving the home. She immediately called LE for a well-check after attempting to call her mom. Wonder if he actually answered and that's why the daughter was concerned.

    What a shame.

    Man accused of killing mother of girlfriend

    Police went to the victim’s home about 11 a.m. Tuesday at the request of her daughter, Myra Ball, 31. The daughter was at work and tried to call home more than once to check on her mother and daughter, and could get no answer. She called police and requested a well-being check.

    Joplin police Cpl. Chuck Niess said Brown lived at the address until about a week ago, when he was asked to leave. Alicia Ball filed a complaint Dec. 8 alleging that Brown took her debit card without her permission and used it to deprive her of about $1,200.

    The matter remained under investigation, and Brown had yet to be charged when Alicia Ball was killed. But Myra Ball had sought a protection order against him in the meantime, according to Niess. The Jasper County Sheriff’s Department apparently had yet to serve the order on Brown, he said.

    The affidavit states that Myra Ball left the home for work about 7 a.m. Tuesday. Brown’s truck can be seen on a video crossing a parking lot across the street from the residence as early as 8:37 a.m., the affidavit states.
