Man indicted on second degree murder in connection to his mother's death


EPHRATAH, N.Y. – A man has been indicted on a murder charge related to his mother's death.

The Fulton County District Attorney Louise Sira says James Dibble, 29, was indicted by a Fulton County Grand Jury on Thursday.  He faces several charges including Second Degree Murder.

Dibble is accused of killing his mother, 58-year-old Gwenda Lisman at her Mud Road home earlier this year.  Lisman's body was discovered on July 1 after concerned neighbor's called authorities because they had not seen or heard from the woman.

Dibble was arrested on July 2.

An autopsy performed on Lisman showed the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head.

Sira says the maximum penalty for the Second Degree Murder charge is 25 years to life in State Prison. 

Dibble is also accused of stealing and pawning jewelry, which belonged to Lisman and NASCAR collectables, which belonged to Jeffery Snell.  Police say Dibble was also found in possession of a stolen Husqvarna chainsaw, which also belonged to Snell. 

He was also indicted on charges of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree, two counts Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Fourth Degree, and one count Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the Fifth Degree. 

An arraignment for Dibble has not been scheduled.
