WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — A 23-year-old Waterbury man has been charged with killing his mother.
Police say they arrested Liam Dooley Tuesday after finding the body of 48-year-old Michelle McCarthy inside the apartment they shared on Eastern Avenue.
Police say family members who were concerned because McCarthy had not shown up at work in several days went to check on her Tuesday and found her dead on the second floor.
Police have not said how she died. An autopsy was scheduled for later this week.
Dooley was being held Wednesday at Waterbury Police headquarters in lieu of $1.5 million bond and is due in court on Thursday. It was not clear if he had hired an attorney.
