The man accused of stabbing his grandfather is now facing a murder charge.
Charles Vanhook was originally charged with first-degree assault for stabbing his grandfather Harold Long in October in Danville.
The elderly man died in January, and now, according to the Danville Advocate Messenger, Vanhook is facing murder charges because an autopsy shows Long died from injuries stemming from the stabbing.
It was originally thought that he died from complications from various pre-existing medical conditions.
Vanhook remains in the Boyle County Detention Center.
