Cumberland County deputies say a Hope Mills man strangled his mother.

They charged 30-year-old Robert Terry Ellison of 1822 Canady Pond Road with second-degree murder Friday.

On Dec. 11, 2011, the body of 50-year old Edwardyne "Dynee" Ann Williams was found in a wooded area about a quarter of a mile from the home where she and her son lived.

Ellison had  been in jail since January on charges of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.  

Bond was denied.
