Brooklyn – Police say 31-year-old Michael L. Brea held his mother hostage and then hacked her to death with a samurai sword while screaming Bible passages. Neighbors reported hearing yelling and screaming coming from the 2nd floor apartment Brea shares with his mother, 55-year-old Yannick Brea, at around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. ”I hear the brother chasing her through the house and he’s just saying a bunch of like Bible passages like, ‘Repent, Repent, Repent,’” said one neighbor. “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.” When police arrived they found a very combative Brea who they had to subdue with a Taser. Once inside the bloody apartment, they found his mother in another room. She had been hacked, stabbed and decapitated. Brea, who people say has never showed any signs of mental illness before, was transported to Kings County Hospital where he is under police guard. Brea is a Subway restaurant owner and an aspiring actor who starred in an episode of UGLY BETTY as well as a dancer in STEP UP 3D. Screaming “repent” qualifies as “Bible passages” about as much as playing an extra in an episode of UGLY BETTY makes someone a regular on the show. Most headlines you see about this story make it seem as if Brea was in fact a series regular screaming Bible passages in an obvious — and equally pathetic — attempt to punch up their headlines. Oh, wait.
