BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man who's accused of killing his mother and stealing her car is scheduled to make a plea Monday in district court in Bismarck.

Dean Grenstiner's arraignment was delayed last month so that he could undergo an independent psychiatric examination.

He's being held without bail at the Burleigh County Jail on charges that he beat his mother to death in her home last March. Authorities say Grenstiner was living with his mother, Ann Grenstiner, for several weeks before she was killed.

Grenstiner was also charged with stealing his mother's car. Police say he drove it to Fargo. He was arrested in Moorhead, Minn., the day after his mother's body was discovered.
