DECATUR (CBSDFW.COM) - Law enforcement officials in Wise County arrested a man on Mother’s Day for allegedly murdering his mom.

Authorities from the Wise County Sheriff’s Office were asked to perform a welfare check on Sunday at a residence in the 700 block of County Road 4270. Deputies arrived at the home shortly before 6:30 p.m. and met 49-year-old Kirk Heithecker, who explained that he had killed his mother.

Officers then located the body of 75-year-old Nancy Heithecker. The body was sent away for an autopsy. The official cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma and strangulation.

Kirk Heithecker was taken into custody and charged with murder. His bond has been set at $1 million.
