May 29, 2014 A Millcreek man accused of stabbing his mother to death in their Millcreek Township mobile home is heading to trial. All charges against Michael Burrows were bound over to court this morning. Police say Burrows grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed his mother Mary multiple times ultimately killing her.

During his preliminary hearing this morning, attorney's maintained Burrows innocence. However prosecutors played Burrows police interview from that March evening. In that interview Burrows admitted to cutting his mother's neck and stabbing her in the stomach. He claimed he was "blacked out" when the incident happened.

A trial date has not been set.
