Teenager 'slit mum's throat after she caught him and friend stealing from her'

DISTRESSING CONTENT- WARNING: The following story may be distressing to some readers.

A teenager beat his mum to death with a baseball bat and slit her throat when she caught him and friend stealing from her, according to police.

Matthew Dempsey and Daniel Saucedo, both 18, were arrested on murder charges in connection with the slaying of Mary Dempsey, 53, San Antonio police said.

According to an arrest report Dempsey confessed to killing his mother with the help of Saucedo.

He told police the two teenagers went to the home in San Antonio, Texas on Monday night or early Tuesday.

After using a key to get inside they then started "gathering items they were going to take from the home".

Dempsey was carrying a loaded gun, authorities told the San Antonio Express-News.

As the pair prepared to leave, Mary Dempsey returned home and flicked on the lights, the affidavit says.

Her son bludgeoned her from behind with the bat, and Saucedo joined in, police told the outlet.

They finished off their attack by slitting the woman’s throat with a knife they grabbed from the kitchen, Dempsey reportedly told investigators.

The pair finished off the burglary job - going through the woman’s wallet and loading the stolen items into her car, the paper reported.

Saucedo left in the car, and both teens later withdrew money from Mary Dempsey’s account using an ATM, the affidavit says.

The woman’s employer realized something was amiss on Tuesday morning when she didn’t show up to work or answer calls so they notified her daughter who went home and found it “ransacked.”

Spotting something under a blanket, she “stepped closer to the blanket and saw it was covering a person and saw a pool of blood,” according to the affidavit.

She called 911, and first responders pronounced her mother dead at the scene, the paper reported.

Investigators obtained surveillance video showing two men leaving the home that night and early morning — and began to suspect Dempsey was involved in his mother’s death, according to the report.

Both men have been booked into the Bexar County Jail on $1million bail each, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
