Prosecutors have charged an Indianapolis man with murder for shooting his mother after an argument over taking out the trash.

Police found 54-year-old Paula Day's body at her home on Nolte Street. They say her son Eric Bowman got into a car and drove away.

The 36-year-old Bowman went to the town of Brooklyn in Morgan County, where he turned himself in to police.

A town marshal shot him in the leg when Bowman drew his gun. His wound was not life-threatening.
