'Ugly Betty' Actor

Charged in Sword Killing

11/24/2010 12:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The "Ugly Betty" actor accused of killing his mother with a sword has been charged with 2nd degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Ulgy Betty Actor Kills Mother
Michael Brea was taken into custody early Tuesday morning after allegedly stabbing his mother to death in her Brooklyn apartment. 

We're told Brea is not suspected of using a samurai sword -- as initial reports suggested -- but rather another type of blade, roughly 3 feet in length.

Brea is scheduled to be arraigned sometime today.

Why isn't this considered 1st degree murder? This was probably premeditated & he intended to kill his mother. I never understood why it's so hard to get a 1st degree murder in the Judicial System. Killing children, animals and the eldeerly especially. People get off with a slap on the wrist.

The cremated remains of Johnnie Cochran are said to be onboard to represent this obviously innocent victim of blatant racial profiling. I blame Lindsay Lohan.

Why do they keep referring to him as an "actor" on Ugly Betty? What was he, an extra? I can't find a reference to him being in anything on IMDB.com....

Just what in the Hades do you have to do to get charged with murder in the first degree?? Going for a samurai didn't take a few seconds of premeditation?????? They can't establish an intent to kill??????? I would BEG to differ on that. Just who is in charge there anyway? God, the poor woman...to be butchered by her own son!
