CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Corpus Christi police say a man has been arrested after his 94-year-old mother was found dead in a wheelchair, apparently shot to death.

Police say the woman was discovered after officers were dispatched to the house Sunday in reference to a shooting. Upon arriving, police detained her 75-year-old son, Leslie Charles Nelson. When officers learned that he’d taken some pills before they arrived, he was taken to a hospital.

Police say once Nelson was cleared from the hospital, he was arrested on a murder charge and taken to jail. He remained in jail Monday on $1 million bond. He does not yet have an attorney.

Police say the investigation is ongoing. The mother’s name has not yet been released.
