According to police, 59-year-old Jerome Klein was angry his mother refused to remove his siblings from her will when he slapped her across the face and injured her hand.
After beating on her a bit in her bedroom, he forced her to his nearby cottage where he forced her to sit in a chair. He told her if she moved from the chair he would kill her, himself and their dog.
So the poor woman sat in the chair for eight goddamn hours.
“She is 81 years old. He did not allow her to go to the bathroom. Denied her water and food. She has horrible bruises across her body and torso,” said Miami Beach Police Det. Juan Sanchez.
No details on how she managed to get away, but she ended up suffering large bruises on her upper torso and left arm, and discoloration on her rear arms and back.
Klein was arrested and charged with kidnapping and aggravated battery on someone 65 or older, and is being held in jail without bond. This is good news for his mother and brothers, who say they are afraid of Klein.Tags: Assault, Crime, Florida, Jerome Klein, Kidnapping, Torture, will
