The front door was open when authorities arrived. Deputies entered the home to see an extensive amount of blood, according to investigators.



Deputies found Kristen Woods' deceased mom, known as Mary, in the garage with obvious signs of trauma, deputies say. Woods was then arrested on an unrelated charge.

Investigators say Woods attempted to clean the murder scene and has been charged with murder. Woods is currently in the Harris County Jail.

Houston police confirmed Woods was arrested for a trespassing charge Monday morning in the Houston Heights. Neighbors say she had a history of questionable behavior, and they were worried for Mary.
