A Gainesville man was charged Monday with killing his mother after she was found in her home with a gunshot wound to the head.

Linda Arrington, 69, of Gainesville, was found by her husband around 6:30 a.m. in their Skyview Drive home off Ahaluna Drive. Robert Timothy Stargel, 54, is charged with murder.

“Deputies and paramedics responded to the residence where it was determined that foul play was suspected in the death,” wrote Lt. Scott Ware of the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, in a news release.

Stargel was arrested in the 1600 block of Oak Brook Drive, although Ware said he was living at the Skyview Drive address.

The number listed for the Skyview Drive address was disconnected when called Tuesday by The Times.

Stargel was booked into the Hall County Jail on Monday afternoon. He was scheduled to have a first appearance in court at 2 p.m. The case remains under investigation.
