Kit Darrant, 16, stabbed his mother to death, Renette Emile, 35. When police discovered the body, it had signs of decomposition. Darrant later confessed to the murder. He lived in the home with his mother's corpse for 8 days. The night of the murder, prosecutors say Darrant got into argument with his mother after coming home late. He strangled her, but because she was still alive, he fetched a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her over 100 times. As the body decomposed, he threw a party for over 60 Krop High students. At least one student complained about the smell, but Darrant laughed it off and said it was probably trash. He plead guilty to second-degree murder and agreed to spend 28 years in prison. He was 19 at the time of his sentencing.
