NY man killed his mother with an ax

Mineola, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island say they have arrested a 24-year-old man on charges he killed his mother with an ax.

Sean Farrell of Medford is being held without bail following his arrest Thursday.

The unemployed 24-year-old pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder charge at his arraignment Friday in Suffolk County District Court in Central Islip.

Court documents allege Farrell killed 45-year-old Bonnie Farrell by repeatedly striking her in the head with an ax on Dec. 9.

His court-appointed attorney said after the court proceeding that his client is suffering from a schizophrenic condition.

Court documents indicate Farrell called his grandmother on Dec. 15, and admitted he had killed his mother.

The 45-year-old victim was a nurse supervisor at a nonprofit that assists families with ailing children.
