MICHAEL BREA, a 31-year-old American actor who once appeared on the hit show 'Ugly Betty', has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing his mother to death with a 3-foot samurai sword, reports Fox News. Authorities responded to calls of a disturbance at an apartment in Brooklyn yesterday (23rd November 2010), and found 'Yannick Brea' slumped in the bathroom with lacerations to her face.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said that the woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and added, "In a bedroom was her son ... with a 3-foot sword". Michael Brea was arrested on charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon, and is currently undergoing psychiatric tests. Neighbours said they heard screams coming from the building in Prospect Heights in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Gregory Clare, a resident of the building, said, "I heard this wild screaming, 'Repent repent, sinner, sinner,' over and over again' and 'You never accepted Jesus'".
Brea was said to have no prior arrests and no previous domestic violence incidents had been reported at the home.
