DALLAS -- A Dallas man was arrested the night before Mother's Day for allegedly choking his mom to death in her home.

Dallas police responded to a disturbance call at 7:03 p.m. Saturday after a 911 caller told them he heard a disturbance while on the phone with Isabel Kristina Lopez, 51. The caller told the operator the person involved in the disturbance was Ms. Lopez' son, Gonzalo Roberto Lopez, 25, and warned he has violent tendencies.

Officers arrived at the residence in the 800 block of Beckleymeade and found Ms. Lopez deceased on the bedroom floor. Mr. Lopez told police, "I choked my mom."

He was arrested and charged with murder. He is being held on a $750,000 bond at Dallas County Jail.
