Austin K. Green-Yurick, a 32-year-old man from Portland, Oregon, was recently charged with several crimes relating to a recent attack in which he reportedly struck and subsequently killed his mother with a baseball bat.
On Thursday at 7:26 p.m., Portland police responded to a domestic violence report, finding 64-year-old Kathy S. Green with life-threatening injuries sustained from the assault.
Austin K. Green-Yurick, the victim’s son, was located at the scene and made incriminating statements during questioning; according to a probable cause document, he stated that he “was tired of the way his mother treated him, and so he struck her.”
Unfortunately, she passed away on Saturday in the hospital, and Austin K. Green-Yurick was subsequently taken into custody and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center. His public defender has yet to comment on his defense.
