A man allegedly confessed to fatally stabbing his mother saying that “she never pushed him to be a man” on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

The accused, identified as 21-year-old Matthew Stewart Sisley, fatally stabbed his mother at his mother's home in Kissimmee and lacerated his sister’s hands when she tried to intervene in the attack and stop the stabbing. Deputies from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the home on a report of a stabbing and encountered Sisley’s sister screaming “He killed my mom!”

Sisley’s sister told the investigators that Sisley, who lived a few houses away at their grandmother’s home, woke her up on Tuesday, Nov. 29 morning by knocking on a rear glass door and told her that he had not slept in days, New York Post reported.

She then helped his brother to sleep and went to a hospital where her brother was the previous day to look for his phone. Details regarding why he was admitted to the hospital were not available. When she returned home, she saw Sisley attacking and stabbing their mother by a door near the garage. When she tried to intervene and get between them to stop the attack, she was stabbed as well. After stabbing her, Sisley threatened her life, demanded car keys, and fled the scene.

When Sisley left the house, his sister managed to get her cell phone from another room and called 911 to report the stabbing. Following this, deputies from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office located Sisley, covered in blood a short distance from the home, and placed him in custody. When questioned about the attack, Sisley reportedly confessed at the sheriff's office to stabbing his mother, NBC News reported.

When a detective asked if Sisley thought his mother deserved to get stabbed, he responded, “Yes. … Because she never pushed me to be a man."

Following his arrest, Sisley was booked in the Osceola County Jail on a charge of domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Additional charges are forthcoming. Sisley remains at the facility on the battery charge with an additional charge of premeditated murder.
