Pages allegedly told detectives that a series of arguments led to the fatal shooting, including disputes over borrowing his mother’s car and then about orange juice in the fridge. He allegedly said his mother threatened him with a knife. Pages asked for the air conditioning remote, which led to another argument, according to the arrest report.
