Police in Wheatfield, Michigan say a teenager shot and killed his mother hours after they disagreed over a puppy, according to The Lansing State Journal.
The Journal reported Monday that Andrew David Wilson, 19, was arraigned the same day in 55th District Court on one count each of murder and felony firearm possession.
Andrew Wilson called police shortly before 7 a.m. local time last Friday and said he had returned from a drive to find that his mother had been murdered.
Police said Lisa Marie Wilson, 51, was discovered dead in a bedroom of her home in the 200 block of Linn Road near Williamston.
Lisa Wilson was found shot once in the back of the head, according to Ingham County Sheriff’s Detective Charles Buckland during his testimony Monday.
Buckland said Lisa Wilson told her son last Thursday that he would have to bring his dog to his father’s home in Dansville.
The detective noted Andrew Wilson told detectives that he then took a .22 Magnum from a locked cabinet overnight before shooting his mother in the back of the head as she slept.
Wilson reportedly next drove around back roads for several hours before discarding the rifle, which police ultimately recovered.
The gun had a spent shell casing and a live round inside it, according to authorities, who noted Andrew Wilson had no previous criminal history.
Buckland added that investigators had determined that no one besides Andrew Wilson and Lisa Wilson were inside the latter’s residence last Thursday night.
The Journal reported that Magistrate Mark Blumer on Monday denied bond to Andrew Wilson, who has been in police custody since last Friday.
Andrew Wilson’s preliminary hearing has been slated for Sept. 28, and his attorney, Stephen Milks, declined to comment Monday.
