PORTAGE — A northwestern Indiana man was charged with murder Tuesday after police said he admitted killing his 91-year-old mother.
Charles H. Trumble, 59, of Portage called 911 Sunday evening and told a dispatcher he had just killed the woman, Portage police said.
Officers discovered Dixie L. Trumble inside the home the two shared with head trauma, police said. She died at the scene.
A weapon believed to have been used in the killing was recovered, police said.
A motive for the attack remains unclear, police said.
Porter County Coroner Cyndi Dykes said an autopsy was planned.
Charles Trumble is being held at the Porter County Jail. Online court records do not list an attorney for him.
