Twenty-one-year old Christopher Strachn was bound over for trial Monday in the death of his mother, Adrienne.
A state police investigator said Christopher Strachn told him he'd choked and stabbed his mother because of verbal abuse and her household rules. He did not speak to the media following the hearing.
Authorities say Christopher Strachn called police after killing his mother on June 13 inside their Polk Township, Monroe County home. Trooper Joseph Campbell said Strachn told them he'd taken medication for a mental illness before the killing.
Family friends tell the Pocono Record of Stroudsburg ( http://bit.ly/M03kGJ) Christopher Strachn's mother insisted on him staying at the home, not a treatment facility.
