OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A judge has sentenced an Oklahoma man to death in the 2011 fatal beating of his mother.
An Oklahoma County jury in November convicted 59-year-old Darrell Wayne Frederick of first-degree murder of his mother, Connie Bernice Frederick.
A district judge on Monday sentenced Darrell Frederick to death. His execution date is set for March, but his lawyers have notified the court they’ll appeal.
Authorities say Frederick began arguing with his mother in March 2011. They say his niece fled the house, and he chased after her with a brick.
The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/1AzTram ) reports Frederick went back inside and his mother was later found with severe swelling to her face and head. She was taken to a hospital, where she died about a month later.
