Police say the victim suffers from physical disabilities and has been victimized by her son in the past. The woman told officers that her son had come to her home and pushed her around, eventually forcing her onto her bed and choking her. She told police her son said he was going to "kill her and end it all."
The woman's son, Lawrence Weston Payne, was charged with injury to an elderly person, a third-degree felony. He was arrested after he returned to the victim's home and tried to gain entry. Payne is currently being held without bond in the Harris County Jail.
