SUPERIOR, WI -- A Superior man has been charged with 1st Degree Intentional Murder after allegedly stabbing his own mother to death.

A judge set bail for 39-year-old Robert Bennett at $1 million on Thursday.

Police responded to a home near Norwood and Gates Avenues around 7 a.m. Tuesday where they found Cindy Bennett's body.

According to court documents, Bennett's son stabbed her in the head, neck, and hands.

Authorities say the son lashed out after his mom tried to convince him to go to the hospital since he was acting unusual.

The son told police he did it because he believed his mom was trying to kill him and "didn't feel bad about it," according to court documents.

Bennett is behind held in Douglas County Jail.

He's due back in court next week.
