‘Ugly Betty’ Star Charged Of Killing Mother With Sword
In what investigators are calling a bizarre series of events, a former “Ugly Betty” star is being accused of murdering his mother with sword. Michael Brea, 31, was arrested yesterday on charges of criminal possession and murder.
Neighbors report hearing Brea spouting Bible verses and screaming “repent” and “sinner” over and over while chasing and eventually knife attack his mother with a 3-foot sword. Yannick Brea, 51, was found dead early Tuesday morning in her bathroom with cuts to her head.
Brea is now undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Kings County Hospital. Raymond Kelly, New York police commissioner, said that Brea had no previous incidents with the law.
