Massachusetts man, 26, charged in 60-year-old mother’s killing in Mashpee

Andrew Baily was arrested on charges of murder, strangulation and assault and battery in his mother's death.

MASHPEE, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man was charged Friday with murder in the death of his 60-year-old mother.

Cheryl Crowell was found unresponsive in a bedroom late Friday morning, and later died at a hospital, Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe and Mashpee Police Chief Scott Carline said in a statement.

When police responding to multiple calls about a disturbance arrived at the apartment complex, they found Andrew Baily, 26, “acting erratically,” the statement said.

Baily was arrested on charges of murder, strangulation and assault and battery in his mother’s death. He’s scheduled to be arraigned next week, the statement said. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
