A man who was arrested on a charge of murder for killing his mother, told a judge to set him free because his mother came back from the dead to tell him that she has dropped the charges against him, according to court documents in the United Arab Emirates.

The 29-year-old man identified as N.L. of Sharjah, killed his 50-year-old mother, who was not identified, and kept her body in his apartment for 10 days before being arrested.

Police found the body of the dead woman in the defendant’s apartment after he was arrested on a charge of assault for beating a supermarket worker.

During questioning, he admitted to killing his mother, claiming that God ordered him to kill because she was a witch.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

A judge referred the suspects to the Al Amal Psychiatric Hospital for a mental health evaluation after he told the Sharjah Criminal Court that his mother came back from the dead to drop the charges.
