Pa. Man Accused Of Strangling 71-Year- Old Mother
JONESTOWN, Pa. (AP)- A south-central Pennsylvania man is accused of strangling his 71-year-old mother with an electric cord.
David Ebling was already jailed on an unrelated charge when police announced Friday that he was charged with criminal homicide and abuse of a corpse. The 45-year-old man lived with his mother, Jeanette Ebling, in Swatara Township, Lebanon County, about 75 miles west-northwest of Philadelphia.
A neighbor found Jeanette Ebling strangled in her home June 12.
A message seeking comment from a public defender who represented Ebling in a previous matter was not immediately returned.
