Va. man, 18, charged in attack on parents
Spotsylvania County police say a woman struggled with her attacker before she was stabbed multiple times in her home.
Sheriff's Lt. Col. Michael Timm told The Free Lance-Star that the suspect, 18-year-old Matthew Charles Robertson, has two long scratch marks across his neck.
Robertson is charged with second-degree murder in the slaying of his 61-year-old mother, Susan A. Robertson. He also is charged with malicious wounding in an attack on his father, Neal Robertson.
Robertson is being held without bond. It wasn't immediately known whether he has an attorney.
The incident occurred Saturday at the family's home in Salem Fields.
A 16-year-old male friend also was assaulted. Robertson's sister wasn't harmed.
