The alleged suspect reportedly called EMSA saying that he had killed his mother.

The victim was identified as black female Glenda Castaneda. She was 51-years-old.

When police arrived on scene, they found Castaneda's son, Arthur Devaughn, walking outside the home with blood on his clothing.

TPD believes there was a struggle inside the residence leading to a stabbing. Castaneda was pronounced dead inside the residence.

Devaughn was formerly held in the Department of Corrections for aggravated assault and battery, arson and burglary.

Devaughn was arrested on the complaint of first degree murder and the investigation is ongoing.

This was Tulsa's fourth homicide of 2014.
