Ugly Betty Actor Michael Brea Confesses to Mother's Murder

Actor Michael Brea, who is most remembered for his minor role on ‘Ugly Betty,’ has confessed to murdering his mother, Yannick Brea, People.com is reporting. The 31-year-old actor told with the New York Daily News that he killed his mother with a three-foot ceremonial Freemason sword because God told him to do it. He believed she was possessed by a demon.

“I didn’t kill her. I killed the demon inside her,” Brea told the Daily News at Bellevue Hospital. He was brought to the prison ward, where he is being psychiatrically evaluated, after he killed Yannick on November 22 in their Brooklyn apartment.

Brea also said that he didn’t “want to kill her right away. I wanted to give her time to get right with God.” He added that she had the voice of a demon. The actor, who was charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, said he felt he had to time to kill his mother before the police broke into his apartment. “I knew they wouldn’t open the door and stop me because the spirits were protecting me…No one could stop me. I was doing the work of God.”
