40-year-old Matthew Skalitzky and his 68-year-old mother, Jane Skalitzky, had just had a family breakfast at Matthewâ€™s parentsâ€™ home on September 11th when Jane offered him a ride home.
When the two arrived at the home that Matthew shared with a roommate, that roommate says Jane greeted him and was ‘friendly’, while Matthew looked â€œdistant and emotionalâ€ about something.
The two had just arrived and headed upstairs. Very soon thereafter, the roommate says he heard â€˜stomping noises,â€™ followed by Mrs. Skalitzky screaming â€œno, no, no,â€ coming from his bedroom.
He immediately bolted up the stairs, and when he got to the room, according to Sun Prairie police, he saw Janeâ€™s â€˜body lying separately from her headâ€™.
He then immediately ran outside to call 911.
When police arrived, they found a four-foot sword covered in blood on the porch and Matthew coming down the stairs inside.
When asked if his mother was dead, heâ€™s purported to have said, â€œYes, but sheâ€™s not my real mother.â€
He was arrested without incident and taken to a mental health facility for evaluation.
The investigation into the grisly murder continues.
