Memphis man charged with killing mother

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Memphis have charged a 22-year-old man with killing his mother.

Police say they were called Saturday morning to a home where they found the body of 55-year-old Elaine Walsh. A statement says she had multiple head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say investigators have charged her son, William Patrick Walsh, with first-degree murder in her slaying.

Online jail records don't show whether William Walsh has obtained an attorney.
