Oldsmar, FL - On Thursday, Christian José Gomez, 23, was charged with first-degree murder in connection with decapitating his mother, María Saurez-Cassagne, 48, on New Year's Eve. Authorities found the decapitated body of Saurez-Cassagne by the garbage disposal area.
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says that Mario Gomez, 26, found the body of his mother outside and called authorities.
José confessed that he had planned to kill his mother for two days after she wouldn't stop from nagging him to put some boxes in the attic of their house. José confessed to hitting his mother in the head with an axe and then dragged her body to the garage where he decapitated her. He then dumped her head in the garbage and left the body next to it because it was to heavy to lift it, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
