A man in the US state of Florida has been charged with first-degree murder for beheading his mother on New Year’s Eve.
Christian Gomez, 23, attacked his mother in garage with an ax, cut her head off and dragged the body to the garbage outside the home, according to Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri.
“He just left the body sitting there, next to the trash can, went into the garage, tried to clean up the scene a little bit,” Gualtieri said. “When he saw that wouldn’t happen is when he left.”
The sheriff said Gomez confessed to killing his mother.
He said Gomez was upset with his mother because she wanted him to move boxes around the house, and he was jealous of the attention Suarez-Cassagne paid to his brother.
Gomez was arrested a few blocks away after his brother, Mario Gomez, called police and reported the murder.
He has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. He formerly had other arrests in Pinellas County for loitering and prowling, resisting an officer without violence and disorderly conduct.
