AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

The Akron man who beat his 78-year-old mom to death, has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Derrick Williams killed his mom Alaine Williams in December 2016 inside their Hartford Avenue home.

Her body was found by her daughter, who called police.

The Summit County Medical Examiner says Alaine died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Akron police say Derrick fled the scene before they arrived, but was arrested several days later when he returned to the house.

Williams will have a commitment hearing on January 18.
