A man who was a person of interest in the brutal stabbing death of his mother, was arrested by Houston Police on a parole violation on Tuesday morning.

Gary Jenkins, 56, was arrested at a bus stop in Houston, and was sought as a person of interest in the stabbing death of his 79-year-old mother.

Her body was discovered Monday in her home in the the 7700 block of Audubon Forest in Humble by a neighbor who called sheriff's deputies.

Neighbors told investigators that Jenkins, who apparently has a criminal history, was the victim's son and had been living at the home.

Officials said they were reviewing surveillance video from the neighborhood, KPRC reported.
