The father, Clifton “JR” Barkin, was dropped off at home around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night by his mother, Evetta Wright, after she drove him to a local Wal-Mart to purchase flowers and a Mother’s Day card for Parkerson.

But on Monday morning, Wright says she got a phone call from Parkerson saying that she had killed her son. The Houston Chronicle has more:

“Paige told me she killed JR, that he was dead,” Wright said through sobs.

Wright said she sped back over to her son’s house, but it was too late.

Barkin, 22, was stabbed several times and died just after midnight Monday in the backyard of his yellow rental house. Wright said she believes Parkerson expected a more expensive gift, such as jewelry.

Parkerson and Barkin’s children were sleeping in another room when the incident took place. They were unharmed. Parkerson is being held in Jefferson County Jail on $75,000 bond.
