At around 10 a.m. on Monday morning, Blessing allegedly hid two pistols inside her robe while confronting her son.

Court records show she believed her son, Thomas Blessing, and his girlfriend were talking about putting her in an assisted living facility because she had become "difficult to deal with".

A 92-year-old woman is behind bars for fatally shooting her son over his plan to put her in a nursing home.

The girlfriend knocked the pistol from Blessing's hand, police said.

The son died from two bullet wounds to his neck and to his jaw.

Now her son is dead, and she faces a charge of first-degree murder, CBS 5 reported.

Blessing told officers she had wanted to kill herself but was out of weapons.

"The girlfriend contacted MCSO who responded and ultimately took Blessing into custody", officials said in the statement.

The incident happened on July 2nd in Fountain Hills, Maricopa County.

She told police she had been up for the last three to four nights thinking about her son telling her he was going to place her in an assisted living facility. 'They are often isolated and neither predictable nor preventable'.

One of the guns had been a gift from her late husband while the other was her own purchase, but neither weapon had been fired since the 1970s.

Blessing was charged with one count of murder in the 1st degree, one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of kidnapping.

Information on her attorney was not immediately available. She also said she should be "put to sleep" for her actions.

Police said they had visited the residence before, following a verbal altercation between Ms Blessing and her son.
