Lubbock Police Dept. Lubbock Police Dept.

We have new developments on a story we've been following Sunday night. A Lubbock Man called 9-1-1 saying two men stabbed his mother and this morning he was arrested for her death.

John Otis Thornton is in the police custody for the alleged murder of his mother, Glenda Williams Thornton. Just after 9 p.m. Sunday, John Thornton called police saying two suspects had broken into his home at 3707 East 4th Street. The 34-year-old told police he chased the two men out of the house and when he returned, he found his mother on the floor suffering from multiple stab wounds. 57-year-old Glenda Thornton was later pronounced dead at University Medical Center.

Thornton originally told police the suspects who broke into his home were two Hispanic men. Police tell us, after investigating, they found probable cause to arrest the victim's son, John Thornton.

At this time, that's all the information police have released. We'll keep you updated on any developments.
