TULSA, Okla. — Police in Tulsa arrested a man in the fatal stabbing of his mother.

Authorities say 20-year-old William M. Stick was arrested after crews found his mother on the front porch of a home with a stab wound. Police said 43-year-old Veronica Stick was pronounced dead at a hospital at about 4 p.m. Friday.

The Tulsa World reports that police searched the area and found William Stick on foot nearby.

Police said there wasn’t enough information yet to describe a motive. After investigators interviewed William Stick, he was placed in custody on a complaint of first-degree murder.

The investigation is continuing. It was unclear whether Stick has an attorney.

He was being held Saturday in the Tulsa County Jail without bond.
