DELAND A 74-year-old man was arrested by Volusia County sheriff's deputies after they said he struck his 100-year-old mother with a broom and threatened to kill her, an arrest report states.
David Corning was charged with aggravated battery on a person over the age of 65, a felony, after deputies spoke to his mother, Ellen Corning, at the hospital on Wednesday.
Ellen Corning, who turned 100 in April, told deputies that her son also threatened to kill her and that she is afraid of him, the report states.
The row between mother and son occurred Tuesday evening in their home on Robin Hood Drive outside DeLand but Ellen Corning told deputies she was afraid to report it at the time.
