TERRE HAUTE, Ind.—A shove may be what caused the death of a woman in Terre Haute. Her son is charged with her murder.

Court documents say Kevin Stevenson got into an argument with his mother, Etta, Aug. 19. During the argument he shoved her, she fell and hit the back of her head. That injury was what caused her death Sept. 2.

According to the court documents Stevenson was drunk when deputies met him at the hospital to talk about what happened with Mrs. Stevenson.

He told deputies “Mom came at me”, and “Mom hit me”. But, he said nothing else.

Stevenson was arrested.

After Mrs. Stevenson died and an autopsy showed her death was a homicide, Kevin Stevenson was charged with murder and aggravated battery. He was expected to be in court to face a judge on the charges Thursday.
