15-year-old Texas boy charged with beating mother to death


MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) — A 15-year-old Texas boy was charged with murder Sunday for beating his mother to death.

The teenager’s father called McKinney police around 1 a.m. to the home outside of Dallas, where authorities found Stacy Ellen Barney, 50, police said. Home security video allegedly captured the teen attacking Barney inside the family home, police said.

The boy was arrested in the area during a search, according to investigators. His name was not released because he’s a juvenile.

Authorities did not comment further on the circumstances surrounding the beating or the injuries Barney suffered.
