The Brentwood Police Department is investigating a homicide that occurred on Torrington Drive where they say a 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of killing his mother.
According to Captain Doug Silva, police were first sent to Chaucer Drive around 10:30 am to investigate a series of attempted car burglaries and possible residential burglary that was interrupted. When police arrived, police contacted Matthew Redmond, 29 of Brentwood, and detained him.
“As part of the detention, officers decided they needed to do a welfare check on his mother who when police arrived in the home on Torrington Drive, she was found dead in the bathroom,” explained Silva. “Redmond is currently being transported to county jail on charges of murdering his mother.”
The victim was identified as Marta Redmond, 54, who according to Silva, appears to be the victim of a violent assault.
This was the first homicide in Brentwood since a double homicide occurred in June of 2017.
