In August, Charles Michael Haywood’s mother brought him to the hospital when he allegedly came home with a bad cut on his hand.

The next day, she brought her 22-year-old son to the police station after seeing him on the news as a murder suspect in connection with the death of Margaret Bracey, 42, at a hemp store in Surf City, N.C., search warrants show, a Pender County Court Clerk confirms to PEOPLE.

At about 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 24, Haywood walked into Exotic Hemp Company with a bandana around his neck and a backpack on and can be seen studying a pamphlet in surveillance photos, according to the Surf City Police Department.
