BARTLETT, Ill. (AP) — A suburban Chicago man has been charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of his 93-year-old mother.
The DuPage County State's Attorney's office says 64-year-old Edward Mitzelfeld of Bartlett was ordered Friday held on a $5 million bond.
Police found Frances Kelly's body Wednesday afternoon on the kitchen floor of the home she shared with Mitzelfeld. She had been stabbed a dozen times in her back with a kitchen knife.
Police say Mitzelfeld called 911 and was waiting in the front yard of the home when officers arrived.
He is due back in court on Monday where a judge is expected to rule on the state's motion to appoint a clinical psychologist to evaluate Mitzelfeld.
Mitzelfeld did not have an attorney Friday.
