Youngsville man charged with killing his mother

HENDERSON -- Authorities arrested a Youngsville man, alleging he strangled his mother to death at a family property on Kerr Lake.

Jarred Oakes, 29, of N.C. 96 just outside Youngsville, has been charged with murder on Wednesday and is being held in jail without bond.

According to reports, Vance County sheriff's deputies responded to a home in the 100 block of Friendly Lane after 2 p.m. on May 24 to investigate a cardiac arrest call.

However, when deputies arrived, they suspected foul play.

They found Geraldine Oakes, 55, of Youngsville dead and she appeared to have been strangled.

According to reports, the mother and son had been cleaning up the property at the time of the incident.

A motive was not clear at press time.

Officers arrested Jarred Oakes and charged him with the murder.

The case remains under investigation.

It is not clear when he is next slated to appear in court.

I thought strangled to death was redundant. If someone is strangled, aren't they dead?
