35-year-old Manuel Mesa of Florida got naked on Valentineâ€™s Day, kicked and punched his mother repeatedly, grabbed a kitchen knife, and fatally stabbed her, according to Miami-Dade police.
He was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the death of his mother, Nancy Mesa.
Corrections workers covered his head with a spit mask when he was being booked into jail to protect themselves, making for a memorable mugshot.
He told officers that he â€œbeat the living shit out of her,â€ and that he â€œstabbed her in the heart.â€ A witness confirmed hiss statement.
Police had rushed to the familyâ€™s home at 3 p.m. on Sunday after a report of a nude man beating a woman.
When they arrived, he was leaving the house, and cops noticed blood on him.
His mother was found lying in the front of the home with a puncture wound to her chest.
She died while being rushed to the hospital.
Paramedics say they found a knife blade in her chest.
