Baseball fan killed mother as team lost: prosecutors


NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York man has been charged with beating his mother to death with a barbell after losing his temper while watching a baseball game on television.


Michael Anthony, 25, was watching the New York Mets lose a game on Saturday from his home in the borough of Queens when he began furiously banging on the walls, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement on Monday.


His father Fred Fischman shouted at him to stop, but Anthony punched him in the face and threw him to the ground, according to the criminal charges.


When Anthony's mother, Maria Fischman, 61, tried to intervene, prosecutors said he stabbed her once in the head with a knife before chasing her into a bedroom where he struck her several times with the 20 pound (9 kilogram) barbell.


"It is difficult to imagine a crime more heinous than that of a son viciously attacking his parents and, in the process, fatally beating his mother to death," Brown said.


Anthony has been remanded in custody and faces a maximum of life in prison if convicted.

He should have beat the crap out of David Lee Roth instead.


I honestly think that is the best course of action in any situation. I thought i overreact when the brewers lose(i am usually depressed for a few hours). This guy is just straight crazy.
