Woman charged with fatally beating mother
A Hillcrest Heights woman was arrested Thursday and charged with fatally beating her mother, authorities said.
Latoya A. Martin, 28, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of her mother, Sheila F. Martin, 53, of Temple Hills. Latoya Martin apparently beat her mother to death after a "domestic-related" incident in the 3900 block of 26th Avenue in the Hillcrest Heights area just before noon Thursday, authorities said.
Police had initially said Latoya Martin had stabbed her mother. On Friday, they corrected that mistake.
Latoya Martin is being held in the Prince George’s County jail, authorities said. A motive in the attack remains unclear.
