Texas Man Charged In Mother’s Death

HOUSTON (January 24, 2014) Alexander Joseph Lewis, Jr., 37, of Houston, was jailed Friday without bond charged with murder after police found his mother’s body in her home.

Authorities think Lewis and his mother got into a fight last Saturday.

Officers found the body of Bernice Willis Lewis, 64, on Thursday after responding to a request to check on her.

They arrested her son at the scene.

Authorities think Lewis remained at the home after the fight and that he didn’t take any steps to get help for his mother.

Investigators didn’t say when they think the woman died and didn’t disclose the cause of her death or details about what led to the fight.
