Michael Brea has officially been charged with as gruesome a crime as one can commit.
The small-time actor was discovered inside his Brooklyn apartment yesterday morning, covered in blood, clutching a bible and standing near the bathroom where police found his 55-year old mother's dead body. Reports indicate Yannick Brea had severe cuts on her head, countering sources who originally claimed she was decapitated.
Police had to subdue Michael with a taser.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told The Associated Press that officers found the 31-year old actor - who appeared in Step-Up 3D - "in a bedroom... with a 3-foot sword."
After undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at a Brooklyn hospital, Brea was arrested on charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
UPDATE: Neighbors tell The New York Daily News they heard Brea screaming at his mother "Sinner! Sinner! You never accepted Jesus!" around the time of the alleged attack.
