A man was arrested after deputies found his fatally injured mother in a Lakeside home.
Around 1:15 p.m. Monday, 50-year-old Arleigh Clifford Anderson called 911, claiming he'd taken too much of his medication and "doesn't remember what happened, but thinks he hurt his mom pretty bad," according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department (SDSO).
When deputies arrived, they contacted Anderson and detained him while checking the home. During their search, deputies found an unresponsive 79-year-old woman with injuries, SDSO said.
First responders performed life-saving measures on the woman but she ultimately died of her injuries at the scene. She was later identified as Judith Anderson, the suspect's mother.
Arleigh Anderson, who is 6-foot tall and weighs 240 pounds, was arrested for murder in connection to the case and booked into San Diego Central Jail. He is being held without bail.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on the case is encouraged to contact SDSO's Homicide Unit at (858) 285-6330. Anonymous tips can be made by contacting Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
