Man wanders square with his mother’s head under his arm

A man has been arrested in Santomera, Almería, after he was found wandering in the square carrying the decapitated head of his mother.

The man, 34 year old Angelo Carotenuto Macanas, worked in a bar owned by his mother. On Monday night he was wandering through the square in Santomera with a cloth-covered lump under his arm. When asked what it was by a passerby, Macanas said that it was his mother’s head and he had cut it off with a large knife.

Angelo Carotenuto Macanas has a history of mental problems and has been interned for psychiatric treatment on several occasions. He has also been arrested four times for domestic violence against his mother. He was not, however, currently under any distancing order.
