BERLIN (AP) Authorities in Germany say theyve arrested a 55-year-old man on suspicion of killing his mother by drowning her in a well.
Police and prosecutors in Muenster said Tuesday that an autopsy showed the 79-year-old woman suffered head injuries before she was dropped in the well in June.
Chief prosecutor Martin Botzenhardt said the suspect appeared to have attacked her because she planned to sell parts of the land he hoped to inherit.
