A Barberton man is behind bars for the murder of his own mother.
Police made a welfare check Wednesday night at the home of 67-year-old Maureen Petrie, where no one had heard from her for about six months.
Officers found her body inside the home, which apparantly had been there for quite a while.
Police questioned 32-year-old Michael Petrie, who gave up info that implicated himself in the murder. Police have not indicated how long the woman's body was inside the house after she was killed.
Police and the Summit County Medical Examiner did not reveal the cause of death.
Michael is charged with aggravated murder.
