Ugh: “Ugly Betty” Actor Michael Brea Kills Mother with Sword while Screaming Bible Passages, Media Outlets Report
An actor who has appeared in the TV series “Ugly Betty” killed his mother with a samurai sword while screaming Bible passages, New York media outlets reported Tuesday.
Michael Brea, 31, went on a religious rant, ordering his mother to “repent” before stabbing her to death, the Daily News reported.
Sources told WPIX 11 News that Brea used a samurai sword to attack his mother, whose body was found hacked and decapitated.
The victim, identified as 55-year-old Yannick Brea, was dead when officers arrived, WPIX reported.
Neighbors on the first and third floors of the Brooklyn apartment heard screams coming from the second floor apartment at about 1:30 a.m., the station reports.
“I hear the brother chasing her [his mother] through the house and he’s just saying a bunch of like [Bible] passages like, ‘Repent, Repent, Repent,'” neighbor Gregory Clare told WPIX. “I heard him chasing her through the house and I hear a loud scream and so I have my father call the cops, call 911.”
My first instinct on this one is “crazy” rather than “devout.”
