Christopher Fuhrer, 30, has been arrested on charges of carrying out an improper burial.
Police went to see Erika Kraus-Breslin – Fuhrer’s grannie – at her home in New York City, just to carry out a check on her welfare
They found the 85 year-old woman dead, the corpse wrapped in plastic bags.
Fuhrer told the police he was worried he’d have nowhere to live once his grandmother died.
He tried to cover up the smell with air fresheners and a fan, police said.
Police said the death itself didn’t appear suspicious.
