Crime & Safety

A 32-year old man was arrested for killing his mother last night in Mid-City. A police spokesman told the Times-Picayune that the man, Leonard Nellum, was arguing with his mother on the 100 block of North Scott Street at about 8:20 p.m. The argument must’ve turned pretty heated, because Nellum hit his mother in the head “with a piece of cement” and left her to die on the corner. Paramedics were called and pronounced the woman dead on the scene. The NOPD has not released her identity.
It’s unclear how police caught Nellum, but he was booked at the Orleans Parish Jail last night.
