BALTIMORE — A Northeast Baltimore man is accused of killing his 75-year-old mother.

Police were called Wednesday afternoon to a home in the 2400 block of Gainsborough Court.

That's where officers found Stewartress Burke dead with "obvious signs of trauma" to the upper body.

Her 52-year-old son, Kevin Burke, was still on scene and admitted to assaulting his mother during an argument.

Burke was then taken into custody and charged.
