NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

An arrest warrant for criminal homicide has been issued against a man with psychological issues who is accused of killing his uncle.

Larry Holmes Jr., 35, is being held at the Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute, and police say he will be booked in the near future.

Mental health workers were called last Friday to the home Holmes shared with 59-year-old Johnny Odom after a relative reported Holmes had shoved her and was behaving strangely.

When police officers arrived to the home, they say Holmes answered the door with blood on his face and his uncle was found on the floor.

Odom was pronounced dead upon arrival at Skyline Medical Center.

Holmes is also charged with officer assault after allegedly attacking two police officers who responded to the home.
