BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A western New York man has admitted to fatally shooting his 79-year-old mother with a shotgun.

Kozak was arrested several hours later at an Erie, Pennsylvania, motel.

He faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 7.

Prosecutors have not publicly discussed a possible motive.
