“An 18-year-old man decapitated his mother and then walked out the front door of her house holding her head in his hand while wielding a knife in the other, authorities said.”
“Oliver Funes Machada was charged with first-degree murder Monday after he called 911 to say he had killed his mother, according to a news release from the sheriff's office. Authorities say he was arrested without offering resistance, and his 35-year-old mother's body was found inside the home.”
“Bryan Cox, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in a news release that the suspect was from Honduras and was in the country illegally. Cox said that federal records listed his name with the slightly different spelling, Machado, but his defense attorney said Machada was listed in local court records.”
