Man released from 30years in imprisonment, kills mother two days after.

A 47 year Old New Jersey man, identified as Steven Pratt have testified to killing his 64-year-old mother two days after he was released from a 30 years in prison murder sentence.

On Oct. 10, 2014, Pratt was released from a New Jersey prison, where he'd spent the previous three decades for the fatal shooting of Michael Anderson.

When he was 15, Anderson caught Pratt smoking marijuana with friends and confronted the boy. 

During that incident, Pratt struck Anderson in the face with a lead pipe. After being hit, Anderson retreated, but hours later, Pratt knocked on his apartment's door. When he opened it, Pratt shot Anderson.

Two days after completing his 30 years, Pratt repeatedly struck his mother Gwendolyn Pratt in the head the morning of Oct. 12, 2014. Police responded to the Pratt home that morning and found Gwendolyn's lifeless body inside.

The statement says officers immediately took Pratt into custody and an autopsy later revealed the victim died from blunt force trauma to the head.

On Wednesday, Steven Pratt, 47, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, admitting his role in his mother's beating death, police say.
According to police, Pratt faces will face 25 more years behind bars when he is sentenced within the next few months.
