CLEVELAND, Ohio – Police said a mother and her two sons are accused of beating a 49-year-old man to death during a home invasion.

Holly Hentges, 41, Nicholas Franklin, 21, and Hentges’ 16-year-old son are all charged with aggravated murder in the June 18 beating death of Charles Foster, who lives about a mile south of the trio’s home.

The 16-year-old boy is also charged in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court with aggravated burglary and kidnapping.

U.S. Marshals reportedly arrested Hentges and the teen Thursday at a home in the 2100 block of West 98th Street. Franklin was arrested at a home in the 1300 block of West 93rd Street.

Police have not released a motive for the attack.

About 11:45 p.m. June 18, the trio allegedly forced their way into Foster’s home in the 3100 block of West 97th Street in the city’s West Boulevard neighborhood.

Court records say the teen had a gun when the trio attacked Foster.

Foster’s fiancee initially told police that Foster was jumped by someone on his way home from buying cigarettes at the gas station, police reports say.

Police reportedly found Foster inside the home unconscious, lying in a pool of blood with cuts and bruises to his face. He was taken to MetroHealth, where he died.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner ruled his death a homicide from blunt force trauma.

After the beating, Hentges and her sons left the home and went to a nearby convenience store, where they were captured on surveillance cameras, court records say.

Hentges was convicted in 2002 for endangering children wherein she allowed a man living with her to sell crack cocaine near a child. She was given a suspended six-month jail sentence.

She also has misdemeanor convictions for disorderly conduct and for allowing her juvenile kids to be out past curfew.

Franklin has a juvenile court record that includes misdemeanor convictions for drug possession and assault.
