WILMER, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say an Alabama man has confessed to killing his mother and dumping her body behind her Wilmer home.
Christopher Adam Salter was charged with murder in the slaying. Jail records show the 28-year-old was being held at Mobile County Metro Jail without bail.
The victim, Nancy Dickens, was found about 30 yards behind her home by deputies investigating a missing persons report.
The Mobile County Sheriff's Office says Salter was taken into custody and was being questioned when he confessed.
