MARIETTA, Ga. -

Police say a 78-year-old man who had been reported missing was found dead inside his truck outside Atlanta, and his grandson and the suspect's girlfriend now face charges in connection with his killing.

Cobb County Sgt. Dana Pierce said Edward Smith of Lilburn was reported missing Sunday after not being seen since Thursday. Pierce tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/10hprKd) that his body was found Tuesday night on a road in Mableton.

Pierce said Smith's grandson, 30-year-old Casey Ryan Collins, and 23-year-old Sarah Elizabeth Cook, both face charges of felony murder.

The suspects, who are both from Mableton, were being held in the Cobb County Jail. Jail records do not list attorneys for them.
