GASTONIA, N.C. (AP) — 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.
