LEWISVILLE (August 21, 2013)--An Oklahoma man suspected of killing his mother and kidnapping his 6-year-old son was in custody Wednesday and the boy was in protective custody.
Lewisville police arrested Robert Connor III, 38, early Wednesday at a hotel.
Connor’s son, Declan, was taken into protective custody.
Capt. Jay Powell says police believe Connor has ties to the Lewisville area, about 20 miles northwest of Dallas, but didn't provide additional information.
Powell said Connor was arrested after officers put a microphone near the door of his hotel room to get Connor to surrender.
An Amber Alert issued in Osage County, Okla., says Connor is wanted for homicide in connection with the shooting death Tuesday night of the child's grandmother.
Connor's great aunt, Marilyn Lorenz, says the victim was the child's paternal grandmother.
