GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) - Southern California authorities have arrested a 13-year-old boy on suspicion of fatally stabbing his mother.

Police in Garden Grove say officers found the 48-year-old woman Wednesday evening with multiple stab wounds. She later died.

Officers searched for the woman’s son and took him into custody a short time later at a nearby shopping center.

The Orange County Register reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/2pLS0aC ) that the boy is being held at Juvenile Hall and could face homicide charges.

His name has not been released because of his age.

Police have not identified a possible motive.
