A man is dead and his murder charges are pending against his mother, Harris County Sheriff's Office officials said.

According to investigators, Phillip Vanshawn Apostolo and his mother were arguing Monday at a home in the 5000 block of Sandydale Lane. Nesha Kraidieh told deputies her 19-year-old son pushed her during the argument.

Authorities say both got into a second argument some time later. Afterwards, Apostolo was allegedly shot in the head by his mother as he was sitting on the couch.
