A Waco man was arrested on a murder charge Monday after police said he confessed to killing his 57-year-old mother during an altercation in North Waco.
The Waco Police Department responded to a domestic disturbance call at a house in the 700 block of North 11th Street at 6:12 p.m. Monday, according to a department press release.
When officers arrived, Lonnie Paul Bishop, 33, met them at the front porch and told officers he had killed his mother, Yun Bishop, of Waco, police said.
Officers took Lonnie Bishop into custody and entered the house, where they found Yun Bishop lying in a bed with "injuries received from blunt force trauma," according to the press release. American Medical Response officials confirmed Yun Bishop had died.
Lonnie Bishop remained in McLennan County Jail on Tuesday on a first-degree felony charge of murder, with bond listed at $500,000. Jail records also list a parole violation.
The incident is still being investigated.
