SCOTIA, N.Y. (AP) — A 20-year-old man from the Schenectady area has been charged with killing his mother at their home.
Police tell local media that Jeffrey Steele of Scotia was charged Sunday with second-degree murder in the death of 59-year-old Theresa Bernard, whose body was found in the house at about 2 a.m.
Steele was arraigned and remanded to the Schenectady County jail without bail.
The investigation is continuing.
It could not immediately be determined if Steele had a lawyer.
