DULUTH (AP) -- A Duluth man is charged with fatally stabbing his 71-year-old mother.

37-year-old Carmen Mosqueda appeared in St. Louis County court Thursday on a charge of intentional second-degree murder.

Police say Mosqueda called 911 Tuesday and asked them to come to his home.

Officers found the body of Mary Mosqueda on the floor.

She had apparent stab wounds to her chest and cuts to her neck and head.

At least two knives were found near her body.

Carmen Mosqueda placed his hands behind his back and told police to handcuff him because his mother was dead.

Police say he had traces of blood on his hands.

Reports say the judge granted the defense attorney's request for a psychological review of Mosqueda.

Bail was set at $500,000.
