Madison Township Police were investigating a murder at a home on Burbank Road.

Officers say a son killed his mother, then called 911 himself.

Police and Franklin County Sheriff's Deputies arrived at the scene shortly after 6:00 p.m. Wednesday.

When Deputies and Officers arrived, the man surrendered without incident. The Captain said the son stabbed his mother to death.

Neighbors said they couldn't believe this happened.

"They're nice quiet people, you never hear anything, he walks the dog a couple times a day, he's out there on weekends saying hi to everybody, real nice guy," said Neighbor David Herring.

Police said the son has mental issues and they've responded to the home before for disturbances.
