ANSWER: Angelo Dunya Wright, 21, is in Sacramento County Jail charged with murder in the death of his mother, Lisa Marie Barber.

According to Sacramento Superior Court online records, his trial is scheduled to begin March 28.

Barber, 42, was found dead Nov. 12, 2011, in her Foothill Farms apartment.

According to stories in The Bee, Sacramento County sheriff's deputies were called to the apartment in the 5400 block of College Oak Drive, near Madison Avenue, about 5:20 p.m. and found Barber, who was pronounced dead at the scene. They said she had suffered trauma to her upper body.

Sheriff's officials said information received early in the investigation led detectives to identify Wright as a suspect, and he was arrested two days later.
