Yannick Brea really lost her head during an argument with her son this morning, and by that I mean he chopped it off with a sword while chanting religious passages.
An actor who had a part in "Ugly Betty" repeatedly stabbed and killed his mother with a Freemason ceremonial sword after a bizarre religious diatribe this morning, cops said.
"I heard a shriek and a woman yelling 'help me'," Vernal Bent said. "We called 911 and we kept hearing screams and then we didn't hear them any more. Michael was chanting Biblical phrases and kept calling for Moses, Jerusalem and the 'architect of the universe'."
Police spent nearly 45 minutes trying to get into the apartment, Bent said. They left and returned with an emergency team, which broke into the home and found Yannick Brea fatally stabbed in a bedroom, sources said.
And by "stabbed"...
Brea sliced his mother's head off during the attack.
When cops arrived to the scene around 2:20 AM, officers had to use a taser to subdue the actor. Brea was taken to a nearby hospital with a police escort.
Police claim the scene was "extremely bloody."
A neighbor told WPIX 11, "I hear the brother chasing her [his mother] through the house and he's just saying a bunch of [Bible] passages like, 'Repent, Repent, Repent.'"
I can we can all agree that this is her fault. Even the witnesses say he gave her every chance to repent, but she refused, presumably because she was hexed by some type of wizard. If you think about it, he sort of saved her.
