Murder charge dropped for [illegal] teen who beheaded mother because he ‘felt like it’

A North Carolina teen who decapitated his mother and then walked outside carrying her head had murder charges against him dropped.

Authorities dismissed the charge on Wednesday saying Oliver Funes-Machada isn't mentally competent to stand trial.

"Specifically, could he appreciate the charges against him and participate in his defense," District Attorney Michael D. Waters said in a statement to WRAL. "The mental health professionals there determined he could not at this time."

Funes-Machada, 19, was ordered by a judge to be committed to a state psychiatric hospital.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement previously said Funes-Machada, from Honduras, was in the country illegally.

An ICE detainer was placed on the teen in March, but a spokesperson said it wouldn't apply if he was seeking treatment at a mental health facility. Waters told WRAL that Funes-Machada won't be deported "until this matter is resolved."

A person that crazy should be locked up for life or executed because they are a very real danger.

Well if he felt like it, that settles the matter then. Gotta go with your feelings, after all

Good heaven's, man! Have you no heart?

These people need compassion, not harsh punishment.

One must be competent to stand trial.

If someone is so insane as to be capable of, and perform, such an act. Then yes, execute them. Promptly.

‘In a 911 call, he told a dispatcher that he had stabbed his mother about eight times because he “felt like it.”’

Mother Stabbers always count.

They never say, ‘I have no idea how many times I stabbed mommy. ‘

It’s always a specific number and they can tell you the exact number.

This kid is never going to be safe or sane enough to set free. They should send him back to the Honduras to jail, hospitalize, or otherwise support for the next sixty years.

They should chase him off of the back of a C-130 with a big knife.
