A man admitted to killing his mother because she disrespected him and kept nagging him about little things, according to police in Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 25-year-old Kervin Pierce after being accused of killing his mother, 48-year-old Bonita Pierce, and trying to murder his brother, Kertwon Pierce.

Kervin has been charged with homicide, use of a dangerous weapon, and attempted homicide.

If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.

Kervin was booked into the Milwaukee County Jail and his bail has been set at $500,000.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded at the Timber Ridge Apartments, which are located in the 1800 block of Timber Ridge Lane.

Kervin told police that he decided to kill his mother and brother because they kept disrespecting him over a period of 3 months.

He was also angry that his mother nagged him about little things.

On Tuesday, at around 4:00 a.m., Kervin drank a lot of alcohol.

He then grabbed a gun and shot his mother in the face.

He then turned the gun on his brother but it jammed.

Kervin then pistol-whipped his brother in the face until he fell unconscious.

Kervin then used a knife in an attempt to stab his brother but the victim’s sweater blocked the sharp blade.

Police officers who arrived at the scene found Bonita dead while Kertwon was unconscious.
