Man Murders His 78-Year-Old Mother over Potatoes


A 40-year-old Mark Jennens was arraigned in court for killing his ailing mother after he got into a quarrel with her over potatoes.

Mark Jennens, who appeared before Wolverhampton Crown Court in the UK, was accused of the manslaughter of his mother Hazel, a 78-year old ailing mother.

Jennens was reportedly provoked by his mom who tried to sabotage his effort while he was making their dinner.

According to reports, he frog-marched his mother, who had osteoporosis and lung cancer, to the door, fracturing her hip. She later died from bronchopneumonia in hospital.

A transcript read out during his court trial stated that the man said he lost temperament on his 78-year-old mother after calling him stupid.

“After being told I’m stupid for trying to sort dinner out, I just lost it and went to chuck her out of the door”, Mark claimed.

Hazel died two days after undergoing surgery over the attack from son.
