The jury reached a verdict Monday night in the case of a man accused of brutally beating his deaf, elderly mother in March 2011.

Darrell Frederick was found guilty of murder in the first degree, guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon and guilty of domestic abuse.

Court will reconvene at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The jury will consider punishment, death, or life without the possibility of parole.

Police said Frederick beat his 87-year-old mother, Connie, with a brick and she later passed away at the hospital.

Frederick had turned himself in to police and was charged with first degree murder.

This was not Frederick's first run in with the law. He was acquitted on a first degree murder charge in 2007.
