SALEM, N.H. (CBS) – Thomas George allegedly stabbed and beat his mother with a hammer to get his hands on his Adderall prescription, according to an arrest affidavit.

According to the affidavit that’s when he, “attacked her by stabbing her in the neck, leg, and hand…Thomas also hit her in the head with a hammer when she tried to defend herself.”
