WEBSTER, TX -

Mark Dickey appeared before a judge in Webster this morning after being arrested last week on charges of murder.

The 44-year-old man was taken to Webster Jail last Thursday after police suspected him of killing his mother in her flower shop on June 15.

Police arrived at the Webster flower shop at approximately 7:32pm to what appeared to be a robbery in progress.

They say they found 68-year-old Brenda Dickey shot to death in the shop's office.

Mark Dickey originally told police that he was in the restroom when the shooting occurred, but last Thursday police arrested him for the murder of his mother.

He appeared in court Monday for a probable cause hearing where his bond was set for $50,000.  His next court date is set for August 10.
