Oklahoma authorities have charged a woman with murder in connection with her 72-year-old mother’s September suicide.

Jaye Dee Watts, 44, is charged with kidnapping and felony murder by caretaker abuse after she “intentionally provided a firearm to the victim which prompted the victim to take her own life,” Oklahoma City police said in a press release.

Officers initially arrested Watts in September after locating her mother, Lynda Watts, deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at her residence on Blue Quail Drive on Sept. 10.

Watts can also reportedly be heard telling her mother to “take your pill or choke on it and die,” according to KOCO-TV.

In an interview with police later on, Watts reportedly said, “[I]t sucks being a 24/7 caregiver.”
