A California man has been accused of killing his mother and uncle during a Zoom call.

Cotton allegedly stabbed his uncle first and then attacked his mother. As of now, there has been no motive disclosed for the brutal murders. A former student of Brown’s who works for Pasadena City College now.

“I honestly feel so heartbroken, I feel so sad,” Dionne Shelter said. “When you don’t care where someone comes from, what they look like, what they might smell like or whatever, and you still treat them like they are the same as you, a doctor with a Ph.D. or whatever, it’s amazing.”

The 32-year-old is currently being held at Twin Towers Correctional Facility and is set to appear in court on Thursday.
