A Charlotte man recently charged with the 2014 murder of his 82-year-old mother was found dead Monday in a home on the 4900 block of Torrey Pines Court in south Charlotte.
Investigators did not give the cause of death for Irwin Jay Feldman, 58, but said they were canvassing the neighborhood to determine if there were witnesses.
Police said they received a call at 2:21 p.m. Monday in connection with a body found in a residence on Torrey Pines Court. South Division patrol officers arrived to find Irwin Jay Feldman dead in the home. The body had been discovered by a family member, investigators said.
Feldman was charged in February with murder in connection with the death of his mother, Ina Feldman, who was found Feb. 4, 2014 in her townhouse, also on Torrey Pines Court. The two lived only a few doors down from each other, officials said at the time.

Investigators said in February that they had found a probable cause that linked Feldman to his mother’s death, prompting his arrest on Feb. 25. A motive was not released. Police said Ina Feldman may have been dead as many as 36 hours before they were called.
Irwin Feldman had told police he found his mother lying in bed, her face, hair and bed covered in blood, and she had no pulse. An autopsy showed she had injuries all over her body, including blows to the back of her head.
