Neighbor Reacts to Pennsylvania Man Charged with Killing his Mother

Posted:
Neighbors of a Pennsylvania man charged with killing his mother say they frequently heard the pair fighting and swearing at each other.

Pennsylvania State Police arrested 26-year-old Benjamin Ball of Washington Street, New Milford Wednesday afternoon for one count of criminal homicide.

State police were notified at 1:00pm Wednesday that Mr. Ball had murdered his 52-year-old mother Lisa Ball, who lived at that same residence.

After police arrived on scene troopers found Ms. Ball dead in an upstairs room.

Neighbor Ruth Donnelly said, "I wish that I could say shocked but not so much after living here the last six months. But it is kind of shocking because even with my grandparents living here, we grew up here, and we're not used to anything at all like that happening around here."

Ball is in Susquehanna County Prison, no bail has been set at this time.
