‘Out of Control’ Missouri Man Arrested for Allegedly Killing His Mother

A 20-year-old Missouri man has been jailed for allegedly killing his mother.

Police in Liberty received a call about a man being “out of control” just before midnight Friday, and when they arrived, they found 46-year-old Jill Little dead inside her home, according to the Kansas City Star.

Investigators determined Little died by homicide and called for assistance from the Clay County Sheriff’s Department after they received a report that Little’s son was seen fleeing from the house before police arrived.

The son, Austin Little, was found just a few blocks away and taken into custody.

Austin Little has been charged with second degree murder and armed criminal action. He’s being held at the Clay County jail on $1 million bond and is expected in court on Monday, according to jail records.

Police have not released any further details about Jill Little’s death.
