A Council Bluffs man will face first-degree murder charges following the death of his grandmother. 

Monday, detectives upgraded charges against Jacob Heyer, 29, from willful injury to murder. Heyer is accused of critically injuring his grandmother Karen Fort on Aug. 27 and Fort died last Friday.

Heyer allegedly broke bones in Fort's face, jaw and nasal passages. 

Heyer's grandfather and Fort's husband had previously taken out a restraining order.
