    Ugly Betty Actor murders his mother

    "PROSPECT HEIGHTS (WPIX) —
    Police say an "Ugly Betty" actor held his mother hostage and then murdered her with a samurai sword while screaming Bible passages Tuesday in Brooklyn."

    Micheal L. Brea was screaming Biblical phrases when he tood a samurai sword and killed his mother around 1:30AM. First responders had to taser him, and he was taken to King's County Hospital to be assessed.

    This is a heartrending story, especially given how inspired he was by his mother...he owns a subway and one Thanksgiving gave away free turkey subs to honor how giving she was...

    Wow...the details are extremely gruesome. I can only conclude (not knowing his psychological background) that he was under the influence of an illicit drug.

    Right. And/or very deep-seated issues with his mother or other woman/women in his childhood.

    A very sad story and he had to be under the influence of drugs or has some mental disorder, maybe schizophrenia. A painful story even to read. May she rest in peace.

    My heart goes out to his twin brother, who lost his mom and his brother (in a manner of speaking) in one fell swoop, just days before Thanksgiving. That's heartbreaking.

    Michael Brea, arrested for allegedly killing and decapitating mom with sword

    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 of a Brooklyn woman savagely slashed to death by her deranged, sword-wielding son claim cops refused to enter her apartment early Tuesday despite their pleas.

    When cops finally got inside the Prospect Heights home, they found Yannick Brea kneeling with fatal lacerations to her head in a blood-spattered bathroom.

    The son, holding the three-foot sword and babbling about religion and repentance, was arrested in a nearby bedroom, police said.

    "I could hear her groaning inside ... She was still alive, but they wouldn't go in," said Clinton Clare, 52, who lived in the apartment below the Brea family.

    Clare estimated police waited an hour before bursting into the apartment, where neighbors heard Michael Brea, 31, delivering a terrifying rant at his doomed mother.

    "I heard a 'Help me!' shriek," said Vernal Bent, 18, who lived in the apartment above. "Police kept knocking on the door. Knocking and knocking ... All of us kept saying, 'Open the door.'"

    Neighbors said the first screams came from the apartment shortly after 1 a.m., with one man saying he made a 911 call and told where he told a police dispatcher there was blood smeared on an apartment window.

    The man said police initially came to the scene and then left - prompting a second 911 call.

    another snip from the above link:

    He apparently removed the murder weapon from a Masonic lodge after a meeting Monday night and then used it later on his mother, said the suspect's uncle.

    Brea was a low-level Mason who was not cleared to take one of the ceremonial swords - typically stainless steel blades with a short, black grip.

    "Something happened that made him do it," said Martial Brea. "The devil entered him."

    Yannick Brea, 55, howled for help that didn't arrive in time to save her. Neighbors said she was a 9/11 survivor who had worked at the Marriott hotel in the World Trade Center.

    A Brooklyn man is in custody and undergoing a psychiatric evaluation after police say he stabbed his mother to death with a samurai sword.
    Michael Brea, 31, an aspiring actor, is currently in Kings County hospital.

    When police entered the apartment on Park Place in Prospect Heights early this morning, they found Yannick Brea, 55, dead with multiple stab wounds.

    Neighbors say they heard screaming inside the apartment and could later hear reciting what they believe were Bible passages.

    Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Michael Brea was sitting in a chair, holding a Bible and the sword.

    Apparently this man was not just an actor. He owned a Subway Restaurant. He was very gracious and they mention his mom in the article.
