Pennsylvania state police say a 10-year-old boy has been charged with criminal homicide and aggravated assault of 90-year-old Helen Novak. According to news station WNEP, 10-year-old Tristen Kurilla described in detail what had happened to his mother, who then reported it to the authorities.

According to the police affidavit, there was an argument between Kurilla and Novak, when Kurilla proceeded to grab a cane and put it around Novak’s throat. Investigators say that Kurilla said he, “pulled Novak down on the bed and held the cane on her throat and then punched her numerous times.”

An autopsy was performed Monday and police say the death was ruled a homicide.

10-year-old Tristen Kurilla is currently in custody at the Wayne County Correctional Facility without bail, and the preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 22.
