Son accused of stabbing mother to death


Akron police say a male stabbed his elderly mother to death following an argument.

At the request of other family members, officers went to Patricia Sees' Highway Avenue home on Wednesday night to perform a welfare check.

Officers had to force entry through a door window, and found Sees deceased in her bedroom.

Police tell 19 Action News the 71-year-old had been stabbed multiple times. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her son, 48-year-old Daniel E. Smelko, was found hiding in the home.

He was charged with murder and booked in the Summit County Jail.
