Man Pleads Not Guilty to Killing Mother

By Amy Bingham | 

Twenty-four-year-old Eric Tobin entered a not guilty plea in Allen District Court Wednesday.

Authorities say Tobin confessed to killing his mother last week. Fifty-six-year-old Pamela Conway's body was in a ravine in the Holland community of Allen County.

Authorities say a potential custody battle sparked an argument between Tobin and his mother.

A preliminary hearing was set for May 12, and public defender James Rhorer was appointed to defend him.
