TUALATIN, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a 47-year-old man accused of killing his mother at a home they shared in Tualatin.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Massey says Garth Beams was inside the house when officers responded Thursday to a report of an assault and found 74-year-old Wendy Henson critically injured.

Henson later died at a Portland hospital.

Beams has been booked into the Washington County Jail on a murder charge. He was expected to get a court-appointed attorney at his arraignment Friday.
