Tri-City Herald (Sunday) - - News -

A 39-year-old man is in Grays Har­bor County Jail ac­cused of fa­tally stab­bing his mother at her home in Aberdeen.

The Grays Har­bor Coro­ner’s Of­fice on Fri­day iden­ti­fied the woman as 77-year-old Asun­cion Lugo. An au­topsy is sched­uled Tues­day.

Bail has been set at $500,000 for Edgar Lugo who was ar­rested Mon­day on in­ves­ti­ga­tion of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence homi­cide.

A woman called po­lice Mon­day to re­port that she was be­ing as­saulted. Of­fi­cers from sev­eral agen­cies sur­rounded the home.

Po­lice said a man came out of the house hold­ing a base­ball bat. When he re­fused to drop it, two of­fi­cers used their Tasers. An­other of­fi­cer fired his weapon but didn’t hit the sus­pect.

Po­lice say Lugo was ar­rested in Jan­uary for vi­o­lat­ing a no-con­tact or­der in­volv­ing his mother. There wasn’t such an or­der in place at the time she was killed.
