A 17-year-old high school baseball star has been charged with murder after beating his mother with a bat then viciously hacking her to death on Christmas Eve, police say.
Police found Sharon Hill Aydelott in a pool of blood at her home in Gulf Breeze, Florida, with her throat slashed and a large kitchen knife sticking out of her eye socket about 6pm Tuesday.Her son, William Brandon Aydelott, a promising pitcher on the Gulf Breeze High School baseball team, was arrested and confessed to killing her after a heated argument, authorities say.
Ms Aydelott was found dead in her home after a friend stopped by to check on her, the Northwest Florida Daily News reports. Brandon had been staying at a friend’s house on-and-off since September because of a rocky relationship between mother and son, police say. Detectives say that after the murder, he fled the home and went back to the house where he had been staying.
Police tracked Brandon back to the friend’s home about three hours after finding the gruesome murder scene. After police took Brandon into custody, he coldly admitted to brutally slaughtering his mother. Detectives say he even smiled slightly as he confessed to the horrific crime.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound teen described in detail how he repeatedly smashed his mother with a baseball bat. He then attacked her with a large kitchen knife, slashing her multiple times and cutting her throat before driving the blade through her eye.
