Associated Press Release
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A Palm Beach County man has been charged with the murder of his mother after allegedly stabbing her over a dispute about a TV show.
Twenty-three-year-old Alan Farajian reported the death of his 62-year-old mother to police late Tuesday.
According to an affidavit, an argument over a TV show spurred the suspect to slit her throat with a steak knife, then stab her in the throat and chest at his Palm Beach Gardens home.
Police say the man told them he had stopped taking medications for psychological problems including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
He described his mother, Gloria Farajian, as "god fearing" and himself as "the devil."
He remains held without bail. It's not known if he has obtained an attorney.
