A St. Cloud man is in jail and accused of stabbing and killing his own mother.

According to police, the stabbing happened during a fight between 52-year-old Dean Friese and 72-year-old Lois Omeara.
     
Omeara was found in her St. Cloud apartment in the 400 block of 33rd Avenue North
with multiple stab wounds.

"It's a tragic situation, but I think in the end, you know we are going to find out why it happened through the course of the investigation, and for now we have what we have," said Lt. Jeff Oxton of the St. Cloud Police Department

Friese was arrested just before 4 a.m. Saturday.

Neighbors tell KSTP Friese lived with Omeara.
     
Lt. Oxton says St. Cloud averages about two homicides a year.
