Authorities have arrested a man accused of killing his mother's husband inside a Clovis home early Tuesday morning.

Police were dispatched to the home just after midnight. The Clovis Police Department said Stotts was not breathing when they arrived. Stotts' wife said he and Goodman were involved in an altercation earlier in the evening, according to police.
