A Del Rey woman, whose son is charged with beating her, has died.Byron Tokumoto was arrested nearly two weeks ago for elder abuse. He told police his mother fell in the bathroom at her home, but emergency room doctors were suspicious when she arrived at the hospital.

Investigators claim Alice Tokumoto's injuries did not match up to a slip-and-fall injury. An autopsy is planned to figure out exactly what killed her.
