by at . Comments

Michael Brea, the small-time actor who briefly appeared on Ugly Betty, was arraigned on charges of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon on Friday.

The 31-year old did not speak or enter a plea, but he's already given an interview in which he went into grisly detail over the circumstances that led to his mother's murder.

Brea is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation and is being held without bail. His next hearing is scheduled for December 18.

In a statement, Brea's family refers to their relative as a "compassionate, gentle, intelligent, spiritual and loving man" who is in need of help, adding:

"His family and friends know, without question, that Michael was not well in the moments leading to [his mother's] death."
