A high school sophomore shot his mother to death and critically injured his brother after a family argument on Mother's Day, police said Monday.
Joshua David McEachern, 17, was ordered held without bond on a murder charge after a brief court appearance. It was not clear if he had an attorney.
Sheriff's deputies did not release details of the dispute that led to the shootings around 9:30 p.m. Sunday at the McEachern home. They said 59-year-old Kathy McEachern was killed and 21-year-old Daniel McEachern was in critical condition. More charges were expected later Monday.
After the shootings, deputies said, Joshua McEachern called 911 and cooperated with authorities when they arrived.
Master Deputy Sam Cureton said authorities were working to find out where he got the gun.
