She was shot in the head after an argument erupted when she came to his room to check on him.

Sgt. Greg Yotsuya of the Ceres Police Dept. said, "He came out yelling something about "my headset is broken" or something about the headset being broken, and then grabbed a gun and started shooting".

The victim's daughter says her mother worked in local schools for decades and that she had been devoted to her husband for 32 years.

"My mom was a wonderful person who loved her children".

Police say he grabbed a nearby handgun that was in the Nicholson home and shot two rounds into the wall, then shot his mother in the head. A long-time friend of the family elaborated, telling FOX40, "I understand that he would've killed the father too, but the gun jammed". (Facebook) Lydia Nicholson cuddles a baby in a family photo. Neighbors say the family is friendly, the murder...surreal.

"What's this world coming to, a video game, 28 year old kid with his video game". Matthew Nicholson then fled to his sister's house in a neighboring town, but was detained during a traffic stop while driving.

Police located him driving his auto in Riverbank, pulled him over and took him into custody without further incident. Investigators are still working to figure out what drove him to kill his own mother. "Was it the video game or was there something else going on".

Nicholson is facing murder charges and is being held without bail.
