JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) _ A man accused of killing his father in 1994 when he was just 10 years old is now suspected of attacking his mother in Rock County.

Janesville police say 31 year old Andrew Churchwell jumped in a car and sped away after officers went to his mother's house Monday. Sgt. Mark Ratzlaff says the woman is bedridden and frail and likely suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Churchwell had to be extricated from the car after crashing and rolling it several times in a bean field. He was the youngest person ever accused of homicide in Rock County when his 45-year-old father was fatally shot. He was too young to either be waived into adult court or found delinquent. The court instead ruled he was a child in need of protective services.
