CINCINNATI — A man is accused of stabbing his mother to death early Sunday morning in North College Hill.

Vanessa Quarles called 911 and said her son, 24-year-old T'ontae Farley, had a kitchen knife and was trying to get into her bedroom. She told the dispatcher that Farley was diagnosed with schizophrenia. While she was on the phone with the police, he was able to get into her room.

According to court documents, Farley stabbed his mother multiple times at her apartment on Daly Road. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Following the stabbing, an affidavit said Farley asked for a hug from officers, and when they asked why, he said, "Because I stabbed my mother."

Police charged Farley with murder. He is expected to be arraigned Monday morning.
