PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities say a West Virginia man is accused of killing his mother’s boyfriend with a machete.

Local news outlets report 30-year-old Matthew Lee Wilson was arrested Sunday night in connection with the death of 60-year-old David Matthew Hill, who owned the house where Wilson and his mother were staying.

Parkersburg police issued a statement saying Hill was struck on the head, neck, shoulder, leg, and other areas. Authorities didn’t say what led to the death.

Police say Wilson fled from the house and was arrested shortly afterward and charged with murder. He also faces two counts of battery of a police officer and one count each of brandishing and obstructing on warrants from a Sept. 12 incident at the same house.

It’s unclear if Wilson has a lawyer.
