BRENTWOOD, N.Y. (AP) -- Police say a man is accused of fatally stabbing his mother outside their Long Island home.

Akcel Arriaza, 19, was sitting in a parked car with his 46-year-old mother Dora Villatoro-Arriaza in front of their home on Adams Avenue in Brentwood at about 6 a.m. Sunday, according to police.

They got into an argument and Arriaza stabbed his mother.

Villatoro-Arriaza was pronounced dead at the scene.

Arriaza was hospitalized for injuries he sustained during the stabbing.

Arriaza is facing murder charges and will be arraigned Monday.

It could not immediately be determined if Arriaza had a lawyer.
