A Texas teen is sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday after shocking details of his crime are revealed during his trial. Kevin Davis, 18, admitted to police detectives that he killed his mother, Kimberly Hill, in a chilling interview following his arrest.
Davis told the detectives he first tried to strangle his mother with a cord, and when she started screaming he hit her with a hammer.
The incident occurred on March 27th inside her Corpus Christi apartment, afterwards Davis went to a local home and knocked on the door saying he needed help because he had just killed someone.
A psychiatrist, Dr. Joel Kutnik, who interviewed Davis told the jury how Davis described the murder:
“He used a hammer to kill his mother, and of course the skull split open. He wanted to make certain that she was dead.
He stuck his hand in the skull and mixed up the brains, then I think he told me he got a knife and mixed em up.
Then he also said that it felt like puddy.
The consistency of the brain tissue. And then he said something about he tasted the brain.”
Kutnik also said that David admitted to fantasies about having sex with dead bodies, and he told police that he had sexual intercourse with his mother’s body. When officers asked if it was his first time, he said calmly, “guess I lost my virginity to a dead corpse.”
When asked what his mother did to deserve this, Davis said, “Absolutely nothing. I’m just a terrible, disgusting person.”
Investigators asked Davis if he felt mentally ill or insane, and he relied, “No.” Prosecutors and medical experts agreed that Davis has no mental or psychotic issues.
Davis did admit during interrogation that if given the chance he would kill again.
The death penalty was not an option in this case because it involved a murder charge, not capitol murder.
