Detectives say there were traumatic injuries on the woman’s body that may have been caused by a bladed object.

Police officers spoke to Shelton and say they connected him to his mother’s death and arrested him.



They say the investigation into Topali’s death is continuing.

It was unclear Thursday if Shelton has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
