(Scroll down for video) A son was relaxing on the couch in his mother’s home when police arrived to check on his mother.

The son, Lake Sabatini of Greensburg, Indiana, told police that his mother was still at work.

However, officers went upstairs to the family’s bedroom and found the mother’s body on the bed. She died of a gunshot wound to the head.

Police said that Jason Eric Eaton, 43, walked into the police station and said that he killed his girlfriend, 44-year-old Wendy Sabatini.

He explained that he planned to propose to his girlfriend, but as soon as she saw the ring box and before he was able to ask her to marry him, she said “no.”

Lake said that his mother, who was married before, did not want to remarry. She was a strong woman and she stood her ground.

Eaton was upset over the rejection from the woman he loved so he grabbed a gun that belonged to his girlfriend and shot her.

He then went to the home of another woman and told her what he had done. That woman drove him to the police station, where he was arrested for the murder.
