A man who had been staying with his mother in Bath is now charged with her murder.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says 42-year-old Jason Ibarra has been arrested for the death of his mother. Bath Police Officers responded to an apartment at 125 Congress Street at approximately 11:35 Tuesday morning. When they arrived, they found the body of 66-year-old Jeanine Ross who lived at the Moorings apartment complex.

State Police Major Crimes Unit Detectives assisted in the investigation, due to the circumstances surrounding the death. An autopsy was performed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner Wednesday morning and Ross's death was ruled a homicide. The manner of her death has not been released.

Bath Police arrested Ibarra Tuesday evening and charged him with violation of conditions of release. He was then transported to the Two Bridges Jail where State Police Detectives met him Wednesday afternoon and told him he was charged with his mother's murder.

Officials have not commented on a motive for the murder.
