Police arrested Sunni Jackson, 36, for allegedly murdering her mother Earlene Grove during an argument Friday morning.
At about 6:15 a.m., a man visiting the neighbor across the street called 911 to report hearing sounds of breaking glass and arguing coming from the home where the woman’s body was later found.
Police arrived to find Jackson sitting outside the home. She was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of murder.
Family members told KSBY Jackson has battled mental illness and that she has a history of violence against her mother.
“She wouldn’t take her medication,” Taylor Castillo, Jackson’s daughter told KSBY. “So when you have schizophrenia the voices in your head tell you stuff, and she would listen to them, so no one really knows what she’s thinking.”
