          January 27, 2017

          Krissie and Randy say if it weren’t for their 18-month-old granddaughter, they would kick their son, Justin, and his girlfriend out of their home. They say ever since they moved in two years ago, the house is a mess, Justin has stolen thousands of dollars from them and he is disrespectful.
