Bail was set at $500,000 for 44-year-old Herbert Rowlette of Pemberton Township, who was due to make his initial court appearance on Monday afternoon.

Burlington County Prosecutor Robert Bernardi says Rowlette called police around 5:40 p.m. Sunday to report that a homicide had occurred in the home he shared with his mother. Responding officers found 71-year-old Maryanne Rowlette on the living room floor.

A cause of death has not been determined, and a motive for the slaying remains under investigation.

No one else was in the home at the time of the killing.
