Posted on Saturday, October 22, 2011 8:08am

An Oxnard man has been arrested for the murder of his mother earlier this month.  The body of Sheryl Tye was found by Oxnard Police in her North Ventura Road apartment October 9th.

Family members had called police because they say they were worried, after not having contact with the 55-year-old woman for several days.

Detectives arrested 28-year-old Nathan Lamont Preston on Friday (10/21).

They’re not releasing information about the specifics of the killing, or why they think it happened.  Preston is being held in the Ventura County Jail, in lieu of $500,000 bail.
