Ugly Betty Actor Murders Mother with Samurai Sword

Ugly Betty Actor Murders Mother with Samurai Sword

Nov 23, 2010

Talk about an ugly situation. Actor Michael L. Brea, who's appeared on episodes of Ugly Betty, as well as in the film Step Up 3D and in various TV commercials, has reportedly murdered his mother after repeatedly stabbing and then decapitating her with a samurai sword while screaming Bible passages.

The actor/Subway restaurant owner was described by neighbors as "quiet" and "into martial arts" (gee, go figure). The murder took place in the early hours of the morning, and police were called after neighbors heard screaming coming from inside Brea's house. Needless to say, instead of a plum role the next thing he'll be stepping up into is a prison jumpsuit.
