DURANT (AP) — Police in Durant say a 22-year-old man has been arrested on a first-degree murder complaint in the death of his mother.

Police released a statement Sunday saying Ian Harley Edmonson was arrested Saturday night after a 40 minute standoff inside the apartment where his mother’s body was found. Police say Edmonson was armed with a sword and was arrested after being shot with bean bags.

The woman’s name has not been released. Police say only that she was 54.

Neighbor Alex Moore says he found the woman’s body and called police after being asked by the woman’s daughter to check on her.

Police say Edmonson is being held in the Bryan County jail pending a court appearance expected Monday.
