A 51-year-old Chicago woman has been charged with beating her 82-year-old mother to death on Mother's Day weekend.

Janette Glenn was charged with first-degree murder in the death of her mother Catherine Glenn, who was found dead inside a closet in her South Shore home in the 7800 block of South Euclid Avenue just before 8 a.m. on Sunday, according to DNAinfo Chicago.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office ruled that Glenn died of multiple blunt force injuries caused by an assault.
