His mum until her death was an accountant with the Camden Council in England. When interrogated, Emmanuel admitted to killing his mother .
"I admit killing my mother by stabbing her. I did this because she subjected me to a lifetime of physical and mental abuse. She used the Bible to rationalize what she did to me.
