NC Teen Charged with First-Degree Murder After Decapitating Mother

A teen in Zebulon, NC has been charged with first-degree murder after authorities said he decapitated his mother Monday, says a 14 News report.

The first officer on scene arrived to find the teenager with a knife in one hand and his mother’s head in the other.

“When they arrived, he was with the decapitation in his hand, and it was a gruesome scene. The oldest son killed his mother. It looked to be a large butcher knife, the weapon that was used. I can’t tell you how many wounds,” Sheriff Kent Winstead told the news station.

According to investigators, the teen, 18-year-old Oliver Funez, put his mother’s head on the ground and was taken into custody. His mother’s body was found inside the home.

Two young girls were also found in the home, but they reportedly had been uninjured.

Authorities say Funez is the one who called 911. He stayed on the line until they arrived.

Funez is charged with first-degree murder.
