MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP, abc24.com) — 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.
