And shot his mom in the head, police say

Man shoots and kills mother over broken video game headset police say

According to a report from the Ceres Police Department, 28-year-old Matthew Nicholson was playing video games in his room on Thursday night when he got upset and started yelling.

His mother Lydia was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Nicholson then blamed her for the broken headset and threatened to kill the victim and Nicholson's father. When his mother went to check on him, he began to argue with her and ended up breaking the headset to his video game, police said.

According to Ceres Police Sgt. Greg Yotsuya, this was the second call in the last six months regarding domestic disputes between Matthew Nicholson and his parents.

After threatening to kill both his mother and father, police say Nicholson retrieved a handgun and used it to shoot two rounds into the wall, then shot his mother in the head.

"My mom was a wonderful person who loved her children", said Autumn White, Matthew Nicholson's sister.

The victim's daughter says her mother worked in local schools for decades and that she had been devoted to her husband for 32 years.

Nicholson's father wrestled the gun away from the suspect, who then fled the scene. "Speechless", said Ron Kutzman, a neighbor of the Nicholson family. Nicholson then drove to a family member's house before he was ultimately taken into custody while at a traffic stop. Officers spotted the auto and arrested Nicholson without incident.

He has been charged with homicide and is being held without bail at the Stanislaus County Jail. Investigators are still trying to determine what led Nicholson to kill his own mother.
