Florida Man Charged With Stabbing Mom To Death
A 22-year-old Florida man stabbed his mom to death in a violent and angry murder. Police say Michele Shimmel confronted her son, Nathaniel, at their home and asked why he was not looking for a job. She then threatened to kick him out of the house. Nathaniel told a detective that he kept stabbing his mother when she tried to get away and then watched her die. After she collapsed outside the front door, Nathaniel stabbed her one last time in the back. He then called 911 and initially said it was a robber but later confessed. Nathaniel was charged with first-degree murder and denied bail.
More Children Who Have Killed Their Parents
Argued Over Grades
Tyler Blansit and his mother argued over the grades he received from the University of Alabama back in May 2015. The 22-year-old ended up beating his mother to death with a baseball bat. She was nearly unrecognizable when police found her body in her Alabama backyard.
Argued Over Music
In 1988, 16-year-old David Brom of Minnesota allegedly argued with his father over his punk cassette tape. Early the following morning, David then proceeded to bludgeon his father, mother, 13-year-old sister and 11-year-old brother to death with an ax. The victims sustained 56 blows collectively. David had told a friend that he was going to kill his parents just the day before. He was apprehended near a phone booth and had apparently given himself a dyed black mohawk sometime shortly before or after the murders. He was convicted of first-degree murder and given three consecutive life sentences after his plea of insanity was rejected by the jury.
