The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney's Office is charging 26-year-old Levente Laszlo Lazar of Bloomington, Indiana with the murder of his mother Athena Valentiny.

Authorities argue that the homicide was premeditated.

Valentiny's body was discovered with multiple stab wounds by Grover Beach police on Oct. 25 during a welfare check. The investigation led detectives to identify Lazar as the primary suspect.

Investigators traveled to Indiana to meet and interview Lazar, and to serve search warrants at his home.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, detectives arrested Lazar on a charge of murder.

No other information is being released at this time.
