A 55-year-old man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter over the death of his mother at Woonona in February.
Boutros Mouawad was initially accused of murdering Hind Mouawad, 76, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge when he faced Wollongong court on Wednesday.
Emergency services were called to the Gray Street premises on Monday, February 20, at 11pm where they found the unresponsive woman lying in the garden of a house.
Paramedics were unable to revive her.
Police questioned two men at Wollongong Police Station the following day.
Mouawad, 55, was subsequently charged with murder, however that charge was withdrawn in court on Wednesday in lieu of the manslaughter plea.
He will remain behind bars ahead of his sentencing later this year.
