The Taoyuan District Prosecutors’ Office yesterday asked the court to hand down “the most severe punishment” to a man charged with beheading his mother in Jhongli District (中壢) last year.

Liang Tsung-ming (梁崇銘), a 33-year-old drug addict, stabbed his 67-year-old mother with several knives on Oct. 17 last year after an argument, police said at the time.

They said that Liang cut off his mother’s head and left hand, and threw the head from their 12th-floor apartment into the building’s courtyard and left the hand in their house.

Police said they received calls from neighbors who saw and were frightened by the bloody head, adding that they forcibly entered Liang’s house after he refused to open the door.    [FULL  STORY]
