OKLAHOMA CITY - A mentally ill Oklahoma City man fatally shot his mother, dismembered her corpse and stored some of her body parts in a freezer at her home, prosecutors allege.
Police discovered the grisly scene when officers arrested Gerald David Hume after an 11-hour standoff last week.
Hume, 52, was arrested about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday when officers forced their way into his mother's Oklahoma City home near Moore.
He was charged Monday in Cleveland County District Court with first-degree murder, desecration of a body and two felony counts of pointing a firearm.
