A woman and her son have been charged in the killing of a 46-year-old man whose body was found in an alley in the Barclay community last week, Baltimore police announced Thursday.

Homicide detectives said Patricia Tucker and Reginald Wragg were arguing in her apartment in the 2100 block of Barclay St. when Tucker stabbed Wragg several times. Police say she then asked her son, Gavin Jenkins, to help her move the body out of the home. Wragg's body was found about 7:30 a.m. in an alley in the same block, police said last week.

Tucker, 52, was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bail. Jenkins, 22, was charged with being an accessory after the fact and was being held on in lieu of $75,000 bail.

Tucker's criminal record consists of only a few trespassing and open-container violations, while Jenkins does not appear to have a record in the state, according to court records.
