Derek Cook, 51, has been charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing his mother, Anne Cook.
Anne Cook was found inside her home suffering from what appeared to be multiple blunt force injuries. She was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
Cook, who was presented in Superior Court Monday, was appointed a public defender. A judge ordered him held without bond as his case continues. He is next due to appear in court on Aug. 25.
