      ROBSTOWN, Texas-- A South Texas man has been charged in the stabbing death of his mother at an apartment in Robstown.

      Nueces County jail records show 29-year-old Gualberto Marines III was being held without bond Saturday on a murder charge.

      Robstown police on Thursday night answered a neighbor's call about a woman yelling for help. Investigators say 47-year-old Rosalinda Marines was in the home and had been stabbed several times. She died at the scene.

      Her son was booked into jail on Friday. An attorney for Marines could not immediately be reached for comment.
