    There's been an update to the story that explains the background.
    It's another murder tragedy.

    That was my thoughts. Perhaps the younger brother was distressed and was becoming difficult and the elder brother thought this was the best out. Very sad.

    Horrible!! That poor guy, betrayed twice by his own brother. How heartbreaking.

    I wonder about one thing: The mother was last seen "on Monday"...if so, how could she be unidentifiably decomposed by Thursday when they found her body?

    Ok, I emotionally lost it at the "mommy" part... the mentally disabled son addressing his mother as "mommy" says to me that he was very attached to his mother. Him being an adult that is developmentally challenged, his mother was probably all that he had in this world. My heart breaks so much for him... inside him is just a little boy and now his world has been ripped away from him... he probably feels very lost, alone and scared. :(

    That makes me think that his stabbing of her was extremely brutal to the point that she became unidentifiable. :(

    Sounds as if it was ...

    'According to court records, an autopsy has not been completed but a visual inspection of the body found "multiple defects consistent with wounds from a sharp object" on the victim's left cheek, ear, neck, left eye, chin, right rib and left side. Because of the body's decomposition, the number of wounds could not be determined without the autopsy results.

    Detectives found several cleaning agents and deodorizers around the body, the court papers say.'

    According to charging documents, 24-year-old Christopher Martin is charged with second degree murder while armed. The documents show that police believe Martin was armed with a sharp object and stabbed the victim, believed to be his mother, multiple times including in the face and side.

    Martin is suspected of killing his mother days ago, and then returning to the apartment Thursday and attacking his younger disabled brother.

    A witness, who did not want her identity revealed, says she saw the younger brother hanging out of the second floor window trying to balance his feet on cable wires.

    "He looked like he was trying to get away," she said. "He was trying to run from whatever was going on in the apartment."

    Residents say the mother was hardworking and was dedicated to helping her younger son through his mental and physical challenges.

    Neighbors say the woman moved in with her mentally challenged son about six months ago.

    Police spent Thursday evening searching dumpsters and scouring the second floor apartment for clues, even using K-9s to collect evidence to this heinous, yet mysterious crime.
