Virginia Beach, Va. - A 23-year-old has been arrested and charged with the stabbing death of his 50-year-old mother.

Virginia Beach Police say Blair Joshua Carr has been charged with murder after his mother, Rosetta Carr, was found dead inside the home.

Police say the murder happened in the Chimney Hill area of the city in the 900 block of Sedley Road, where the victim and suspect resided.

Calls came in to emergency officials at 2:05 p.m. Monday about a person who had died at a home.

No other details about this incident have been released.

Blair Carr appeared in court on Tuesday morning. A judge said Carr is likely to be ordered to undergo an evaluation for suicide issues. And, while she doesn't expect that he will be granted bond, she scheduled a bond hearing for later this week.

That could be pushed back, however, as prosecutors said that out of town family members have requested to be present.

In the meantime, Carr will remain in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center.
