Man charged with capital murder in shooting death of mother
JEFFERSON COUNTY - A man is charged with capital murder in the shooting death of his mother.
A judge arraigned Joseph Garrett Arredondo, 26, of Nederland, on a charge of capital murder Thursday morning at the Jefferson County Jail. The judge set bond at $2 million on the capital murder charge. There's also a mental health hold on the suspect, according to the jail.
Nederland Police Chief Darrell Bush says Arredondo shot and killed his mother, Hollie Ann Arredondo, 55, of Nederland, Wednesday afternoon at the Hillcrest Apartments off 27th Street.
According to investigators, the 55-year-old mother was on the phone with MHMR shortly after 5 p.m. Investigators say someone gave police the wrong address, and when officers arrived only minutes later, they found the 26-year old suspect outside with a 40 caliber pistol in his pants. They discovered that the back door had been kicked in and the woman had been shot at least twice.
