Andrew Rupp

An eastern Iowa man is charged in the murder of his mother.

Davenport police were called to an apartment north of the downtown on Tuesday afternoon to investigate a report of a suspicious death. Officers found the body of 77-year-old Dianne Rupp in an apartment.

It’s unclear how she may’ve died. Police arrested Rupp’s son, initially on charges of interference with officials acts and possession of a controlled substance.

Later, 53-year-old Andrew Rupp was charged with first-degree murder. He’s being held in the Scott County Jail.
