Man charged in mother’s slaying

DA files murder count in north Chico death

On Monday (March 9), 45-year-old Aaron Connors was charged with murder in the death of his mother last week in north Chico, according to online court records.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office said it received a 911 call around 5 p.m. last Thursday (March 5) from a resident on the 4300 block of Keefer Road reporting that his roommate, 68-year-old Susan Robb, had died and appeared to have suffered a head wound.

While deputies were responding, BCSO received another call from a resident on nearby Felicidad Lane reporting a suspicious looking vehicle. It was registered to Connors, who allegedly was estranged from his mother. Deputies tracked Connors down at Gold Country Casino in Oroville, where he was arrested on suspicion of murder.
