A Gastonia man has been arrested and accused of killing his mother.
Forty-seven-year-old Jerry Bryan Gibble has been charged with murder for a fire in the home he shared with 68-year-old Brenda Jenkins Dixon.
Officials say Dixon died from carbon monoxide poisoning in the Oct. 12 fire.
Gibble also is charged with arson.
It was not clear if he has a lawyer. He's being held in the Gaston County jail.
