A 20-year-old Centereach man has been arrested on charges of beating to death his fiancee's 90-year-old grandmother, Suffolk County police said yesterday.

Robert Waters was charged with second-degree murder after police found Florence Trosani, 90, beaten Tuesday night at 43 W. Court Dr., police said.

Trosani was pronounced dead a Stony Brook University Medical Center, police said.

A police spokeswoman said Waters, his fiancee -- who was not identified -- and Trosani lived together at the home.

Officers from the Sixth Precinct went to the home at about 9:20 p.m., responding to a 911 call for a man needing medical attention.

Waters also was transported there and admitted for observation, police said. Police did not provide any other information on his injuries. He will be arraigned at a later date, police said.
