CROWN POINT, Ind. - The son of an 80-year-old woman found stabbed to death in her hospital room has been charged with murder.
The (Munster) Times reports 60-year-old Rodney Louis Dickinson was charged Saturday in connection with the slaying early Friday of Margrine Haywood , a patient at Methodist Hospitals Southlake campus in Merrillville.
Haywood's husband, James Haywood, was found stabbed to death in his Gary home a few hours after her stabbing, but no charges have been filed in connection with his death.
An affidavit says a witness told police she saw Dickinson acting strangely in his mother's hospital room, then heard screams and saw Dickinson running away. It says that before losing consciousness, Margrine Haywood told a nurse that Dickinson had killed her.
It's not clear if Dickinson has an attorney.
