VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Police say a Virginia man has been accused of killing his mother and the family dog, who were both found dead on Thanksgiving day.

Jacob N. Davis was charged with second-degree murder and animal cruelty.

Virginia Beach police say officers were performing a welfare check on Thursday when they found 50-year-old Tara Davis dead inside a home.

Animal control was called to the home later in the day.

The case is under investigation but police believe it is a domestic-related incident. It’s unclear whether 27-year-old Davis has an attorney.
