Carrollton Man Tries To Kill His Mom For Money

Police say a Carrollton man admits to trying to kill his mother, in hopes of collecting the financial benefits after her death.
34-year old Larry Wayne Martin, Jr. faces charges of aggravated assault under the family violence act, burglary and criminal attempt to commit murder.
According to Captain Chris Dobbs with the Carrollton Police Department, Martin entered his mother’s home over the weekend and placed a pillow over her face in an attempt to suffocate her. After some time on top of the 60-year-old woman, the 285-pound Martin released his grasp and left the residence.
The victim had been asleep until the attack and apparently did not know who her assailant was at the time of the incident.
Police suspected the woman’s son after she told investigators that he had been at her home the previous day asking about her alarm system.
