Man Arrested in Fatal Shooting of Mother in Houston

A Houston man has been arrested in the death of his mother after police say he confessed to fatally shooting her.

Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva says 37-year-old Joseph Lightsey walked into a medical center police department late Friday and said he'd shot his mother. Houston police then responded.

Silva says officers then went to the home and found the woman's body and a gun.

Joseph Lightsey was arrested Saturday in the death of Cynthia Lightsey. He remained in jail on a murder charge on Sunday. Bail was set at $100,000. Court records did not list an attorney.
