LAKEWOOD - A man arrested Friday in the killing of his mother in the home they shared told officers she was "possessed by demons," according to an arrest affidavit.

Timothy Baca, 41, was being held on first-degree murder charges for the death of 65-year-old Bernice Medina.

Medina's friend received a call from Baca asking her to come to their home on Everett Court, the affidavit said. Upon entering, she found Medina's body and called police.

When officers arrived, they couldn't convince Baca to come out of the home immediately, so they forced their way in. Officers said he told them he and his mother had a relationship that had deteriorated in recent years and that they'd been in an argument. He confessed to killing her, they said.
