Prosecutors file murder charges after OKC standoff

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a 52-year-old Oklahoma man with first-degree murder in the death of his 77-year-old mother.

Prosecutors filed the charges Monday against Gerald David Hume in the death of Janet Hume. Officers arrested Hume on Nov. 14 after an 11-hour standoff in Oklahoma City.

Authorities say the standoff began when Gerald Hume refused to open the door for officers conducting a welfare check. Police say authorities found Janet Hume dead inside the home when they entered.

An affidavit says Janet Hume died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Gerald Hume was charged with one count of first-degree murder, one count of desecration of a human corpse and two counts of feloniously pointing a weapon. He remains jailed without bond and court records do not list an attorney.
