MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

A man charged with killing his own mother was in a Mobile courtroom Monday.

47-year-old Joseph Wood had a preliminary hearing on a murder charge. Prosecutors said Wood admitted to killing his mother, 70-year-old Carol Croucher.

They said Wood told them she would not stop crying so he beat her with her oxygen tank. Judge Joe Basenberg ruled there was enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury.

If convicted Wood could face ten years to life in prison.
