On Wednesday, prosecutors told a Broward County courtroom that Gerard Lopes Belmonte's disturbing motive for killing his adoptive mother two years ago, was to cover up the fact that he had just raped her.
DNA tests showed Lopes' semen was found inside his 43-year-old mother's body, said Assistant State Attorney Adriana Alcalde.
On July 20, 2011, the badly beaten body of Natalie Belmonte was found in a marsh near the Pembroke Pines home she shared with her son.
Lopes reported his mother missing three days earlier.
However, the night before Belmonte's disappearance, video footage from a neighbors security camera shows Belmonte and Lopes, leaving together (apparently to attend a family event), then returning home around 2:48 a.m. Shortly thereafter, Lopes can be seen dragging a large bag across the driveway and placing it into the trunk of Belmonte's Lexus.
That car would later be found next to a dumpster, where Lopes reportedly discarded bloody sheets from his mother's bed, according to court documents.

Lopes had previously been charged with stealing $20,000 in jewelry from his mother.
Lopes, who has denied killing his mother, has been charged with first-degree murder and is currently being held at the Broward County Jail on an immigration detainer.

Another crime by Obama dreamers ...Attorneys on Thursday prepared for the second trial of a woman accused of murdering her daughter by presenting motions to the judge.
Vanessa Patricio Cruz, 31, is charged with murdering her 20-month old daughter, Jocelin Gutierrez, in 2005 by hitting her over the head with a remote control. The case went to trial in May, but after a bailiff error during the jury deliberation, Judge Burke McCahill was forced to declare a mistrial.
Both have strong family values that Obama says we need more of !
Marco Rubio thinks we need more of those kind of people here
I wonder how old he was when he was adopted? And why? (maybe us evil Americans put his folks in prison or even deported them)
The county where I live, after redistricting, changed my rep from dws, to alcee hastings.
YEAH, I thought it couldn’t get worse!
I’m sure ol alcee agrees with me on everything huh? /s
Correction: He’s an undocumented rapist.
Don’t blame him; he was only attempting to go to a better prison than he would have if he had murdered her in his own country.
OMG.....words fail me.
You never know what McCain’s wacky “dreamers” and “valedictorians” will do next.
Usually we hear the mother saying “But he’s such a good boy”. Not this time.
