CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The man accused in his mother's 2014 murder was found dead inside his Charlotte home Monday morning. Irwin Feldman was arrested in late February and charged in the 2014 death of his mother, Ina Feldman.
Irwin Feldman told police he came home to check on his mother, Ina Feldman, and found her dead inside her Charlotte townhouse on Torrey Pines Court. Irwin, who lives a few doors down, reportedly found her lying in bed bed covered in blood. She had no pulse. Investigators said she was beaten and strangled.
Two years ago, Feldman described the condition his mother was in to a 911 dispatcher, "There's blood all over her hair. It looks like she was hit in the head with something. There's blood all over."
Police believe Feldman could have been killed as many as 36 hours before her body was found.
Police said that physical evidence and interviews led them to naming Irwin Feldman as a suspect. He was taken to Mecklenburg County jail in late February. He was charged with murder and released about a month later on a $175,000 bond.
Sources close to the investigation say Irwin Feldman was found hanging in a closet in his house Monday afternoon.
MEDIC says they were called to the 4900-block of Torrey Pines Court around 2:21 p.m., that's where police say a death investigation is underway.
