ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A 21-year-old man has been arrested on a charge he killed his mother outside a church and school in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C.

The Montgomery County Police Department said in a statement Saturday that Kevin Justin McGuigan faces a first-degree murder charge in killing of his mother, 49-year-old Jaclyn McGuigan.
