Court Day For Jackson Man Accused Of Killing His Mother New Year’s Eve

JACKSON COUNTY, MI (WLNS) – A Jackson County man is expected to appear in court this morning on charges he killed his own mother New Year’s Eve.

According to Michigan State police 29-year-old Matthew King and his 59-year-old mother Kristy King got into an argument which escalated in the man’s home on the 1000 block of Henrietta Street in Summit Township. Our media partners at the Jackson Citizen Patriot say the suspect hit her in the head with a dumb-bell and strangled her.

He then went to his mother’s home on Palmer Street and called 9-1-1 to confess to the crime.
