      Greenfield man accused of killing his mother and hiding the body


      A 27-year-old upstate New York man has been accused of battering his mother to death and hiding her body under a shed at their home.


      The Saratoga County Sheriff's office tells local media outlets that Joshua Mcwain had an argument Saturday with Carol Stanford and hit her with a blunt object.


      Police say he was arrested Wednesday after investigators found his mother's body on the property in the town of Greenfield.


      Mcwain was arraigned in town court on a second-degree murder charge. He's is being held without bail. Court officials weren't available to say if he has a lawyer.


      Greenfield is 30 miles north of Albany.
