The actress Mollie Fitzgerald(38) who portrayed the small role was arrested Tuesday by police in Olathe, Kansas, ANI reports.
The actress is charged with second-degree murder and jailed on $500,000 bond.
Her 68-year-old mother Patricia “Tee” Fitzgerald was found dead on December 20 inside her Olathe home.
According to the website IMDb, the actress is a movie director, producer as well as an actress. She worked on mostly low-budget films, including The Lawful Truth in 2014 and The Creeps in 2017.

“Being a part of this production has been one of the best experiences of my life,” Fitzgerald had told a comic book publication in 2011.
Their mother Patricia Fitzgerald was moving back to the Kansas City area after living several decades in the Houston area, her brother, Gary Hunziker, told the Star.
Hunziker said he knew few details about the circumstances surrounding his sister’s death.
“We were shocked,” he said. But, “it doesn’t matter the circumstances — the loss of a sister is what it’s all about.”
