He was arrested in February 2018 after Austin police officers were called to the home he shared with his mother. They found 60-year-old Susan Spoors had been stabbed. She later died from her injuries and he was charged with second-degree murder.

The criminal complaint indicates she told a member of the medical team that her son was responsible for her wounds before she passed away.

The charges indicate the stabbing occurred during an altercation between the two over some pills sought by the son.

Spoors is scheduled to be sentenced in June.
