THE WOODLANDS, Texas (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting his mother has been arrested following a standoff at a Houston-area home where the body was found.
Montgomery County jail records show 37-year-old Stuart McGuirt of Spring was being held without bond Friday on a murder charge. Online jail records do not list an attorney for McGuirt, who surrendered late Thursday afternoon in The Woodlands.
He's charged in the fatal shooting of 58-year-old Anne McGuirt during a domestic disturbance.
Officials say the suspect's girlfriend allegedly was assaulted and ran to a nearby business to report being attacked and say she witnessed the fatal shooting. The girlfriend was treated for minor injuries.
The standoff lasted nearly three hours.
