BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) — A Bullhead City man is accused of stabbing his mother to death after the two got into a fight.

Bullhead City police say 43-year-old Travers Wesley Proulx has been booked into Mohave County Jail on first-degree murder and other charges.

It was not immediately known Monday if he had an attorney.

Investigators say officers and paramedics found 74-year-old Bette Vaughn dead of multiple stab wounds at a home around 4:15 a.m. Sunday.

According to family members, her screams woke up the suspect's brother.

Travers then threatened to kill the brother and his stepfather before fleeing on foot.
