A brother who was not happy at how his sister has been abusing their old mother has killed her.
A 44-year-old Taiwanese man identified as Wang, has murdered his sister for physically and emotionally abusing their aged mother.
Brother Wang who has been arrested and charged with the crime, confessed that he had to defend his mother when the sister decided to turn the older woman into her punching bag and object of mockery.
The single and unemployed Wang who lived with his mother and sister, said that he was the only one taking care of the old mother, doing most of the housework, cleaning and cooking, while his sister hung out with her friends and refused to care for the old lady, only to bully the woman whenever she needed money.
Wang and his sister lived off money left to their mother by her late husband but he was frustrated with his sister as she constantly demanded money from their mother so she can go out and have a good time.
Wang said that his mother fell ill and was hospitalized and less than 24 hours after their mother returned from the hospital, his sister demanded money from her mother and when she could not get any, she reportedly punch the sick mother.
Wang said he became angry and took a kitchen knife and stabbed his sister to death. He then cleaned the crime scene and prepared breakfast for his mother.
Later that afternoon, when his mother was asleep, he called the police and turned himself in for murder.
He allegedly told police the he had contemplated suicide on a number of occasions due to stress in the home. However, he knew that it would be bad for his mother to be left alone with his sister.
