49-year-old Robert Archbold, from Hawkshead in Cumbria, has been sentenced to 13 years in jail for the manslaughter of his mother.
Police were called to 78-year-old Jane Archbold's house at 10pm on 21st August 2012, after a reports that she had been attacked.
When police arrived at the scene they found she had injuries to her face, and attempts to resuscitate her failed.
Police found Mr Archbold nearby, and they say he made admissions that he killed his mother.
He was later arrested and charged with murder.
Detective Chief Inspector Bob Qazi, who led the investigation, said:
“Archbold admitted from the beginning that he had killed his mother.
“It appeared that he had a lot of personal issues and on the 21st assaulted her which resulted in her death from asphyxiation.
“This has been a tragic case for all those involved and our thoughts are with the family of Mrs Archbold.”

Below is the statement from the Crown Prosecution Service, commenting after the verdict was returned in the Carlisle murder case:
“Piotr Zygner and Sylwester Kawalec have today been convicted of murdering Mr Kulinski and Paulina Mucha has been convicted of his manslaughter.
"They targeted their victim outside his own home and subjected him to a violent and brutal attack - he was stabbed multiple times and received fatal injuries.
“Throughout the investigation and the trial, they have sought to cover up their truly dreadful crime.
"They even enlisted the help of other defendants to provide false alibis and conceal evidence relating to the murder.
“Nevertheless, the CPS has been determined to bring them to justice for their actions.
"As a result, Artur Woszczyna and Artur Skoczen have also been convicted of conspiring to pervert the course of justice, while Adam Karpuk and Paulina Mucha pleaded guilty to this charge at an earlier hearing.
“It is testament to the courage of the witnesses who came forward and gave evidence that we were able to build a strong case and secure these convictions.
– Isla Chilton, Senior Crown Prosecutor, Crown Prosecution Service
“I would also like to offer my sympathies to the family and friends of Mr Kulinski and I hope that today’s verdict will go some way into helping them to come to terms with their loss.”
