Miami teen kills mother, then hosts house party with her body hidden under

A Miami teenager who pleaded guilty to killing his mother and hosting a party while her body was still inside the home is going to be behind bars for 28 years.

On Friday, 19-year-old Kit Darrant pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for 35-year-old Renette Emile’s 2012 death.

Prosecutors have said the then 16-year-old student got into an argument with his mother, strangled her and stabbed her more than 100 times, using a butcher knife as the weapon.

According to law enforcement, Darrant got back to the house behind schedule, then the verbal dispute took place.

Police have said Darrant covered her body up with sheets and sprinkled laundry detergent over it to cover the smell as he skipped school and partied.

The Miami Herald reported that Darrant told a partygoer the smell was most likely trash.

According to the newspaper, the body was found after Emile’s sister became concerned.

Citing court documents, the Miami Herald reported Darrant dealt with mental illness and was hospitalized at one point after leaping out of a moving car and challenging oncoming traffic to strike him.

The newspaper quoted Darrant’s attorney, Christopher DeCoste, as saying: ‘The murder of Rene Emile was tragic and Mr. Darrant publicly apologizes for his actions and the immense pain they have caused others.

‘This deal is equally beneficial to both sides.

‘It allows this young man to repay his debt to society yet still have a second chance at life.’

Via the newspaper, prosecuting attorney Laura Adams said ‘It’s a fair resolution for all.’
