Satan killed his mom

A mentally ill man stabbed his 84-year-old mom to death, and then told police that “Satan” did it, prosecutors allege.

Joseph Nerone, 54, was discovered covered in blood after he’d killed Elaine Nerone at their home on the Northwest Side on Friday morning, authorities say.

When detectives questioned him he told them that “Satan killed the victim and that Satan was inside him,” Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Terry Clancy said in court Sunday.
