A Tehachapi man accused of killing his mother made his first appearance in court on Tuesday.

Matthew Jensen is charged with first-degree murder, but his arraignment was postponed.

Jensen was pulled over in Arizona last month. He told authorities that he had killed his 75-year-old mother, Barbara Jensen Teague.

Kern County deputies drove to the family's home on Luana Drive and Westwood Avenue and found she had been stabbed to death.
