Trial set for son accused of attacking mother

The reasons that the mother and son were said to be in the Thomas Memorial Hospital waiting room at the same time are said to be pure coincidence. Talton Pratt was there with his girlfriend, and Marcia Chandler was there visiting her mother. There was a confrontation that day last may, and Talton is accused of attacking his mother and throwing her to the floor, then beating her until she lost consciousness. Pratt pleaded not guilty to several charges Friday and trial has been set for December 17
