A son in his 30s who killed his mother while drunk during the Lunar New Year holiday and was sleeping next to her was arrested.

On the 11th, the Goyang Branch of the Uijeongbu District Court issued an arrest warrant for Mr. A, a man in his 30s who is suspected of murdering a parricide, on the grounds that he was “concerned about running away.”

Previously, Mr. A, who attended the pre-arrest interrogation (warrant substantive examination) held at Goyang Branch at 4 PM on this day, did not give any answers to reporters' questions such as "Why did you kill your mother?" and "Do you remember anything about that day?"

Mr. A is accused of killing B, a mother in her 50s, by swinging a weapon at an apartment in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do at around 1 am on the 10th.

It was discovered that Mr. A went out the night before the incident and returned home after drinking with an acquaintance.

Afterwards, Mr. A, who committed the crime while intoxicated, is said to have called an acquaintance and informed him of his crime.

After receiving a report from an acquaintance, the police found mother B dead inside the house and person A sleeping nearby.

Mr. A, who was arrested urgently, admitted to the crime, but was known to speak gibberish about the motive for the crime.

Mr. A, who had previously served time in prison on charges related to drunken accidents, was found to have lived with his mother without a proper job until recently.

A police official said, "Mr. A is only saying things that cannot be understood at all," and added, "We plan to investigate the specific motive for the crime and whether he is an accomplice through further investigation."
