Posted by wlpo on July 19, 2012

A 32-year old Amboy man is charged with murder after breaking into an elderly couple’s home.

Matthew Welling will be arraigned today for killing 79-year old Delmar Leroy Daniels Wednesday night in his Amboy home.  He was arrested last night after investigators say they got a tip about his involvement.

According to, Welling has cuts on his body which he allegedly got from a struggle with Daniels.  Daniels’ wife was found inside the home pinned between her wheelchair and wall.  She was taken to Mendota Community Hospital with minor injuries.

A cause of death for Daniels hasn’t been released.
