REDLANDS, Calif. (AP) -- Redlands police have arrested a 25-year-old man for investigation of murder after officers responding to a call found his mother slain and his sister injured.

Police spokesman Carl Baker says officers arrived at the family's home about 5:30 a.m. Saturday to find the 46-year-old woman dead and her 21-year-old sister injured.

They found the woman's 25-year-old son, Pablo Hernandez Jr., outside the home.
