“You took my life, so I’m taking yours,” Anna Mae Blessing reportedly said as deputies escorted her from the apartment she shared with her 72-year-old son and his girlfriend.
Blessing told deputies her son wanted her to leave because she “had become difficult to live with.”
Blessing reported hiding two pistols in the pockets of her robe before confronting her sleeping son, court records show.
She fired one of the pistols multiple times, striking and killing her son before pointing the gun at his girlfriend, who wrestled away the firearm and threw it into a corner of the room, court records show. Officials said Blessing faces charges of first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and kidnapping. Her bond was set at $500,000.
