A Pennsylvania man tried to kill his mother for switching the channel on their TV, according to a new report.
David F. Cantrell got into a heated argument with his mom in their home on Jean Drive in Bath, PA, after she switched the station at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Lehigh Valley Live reported.
Cantrell, 42, became so “enraged” that he clocked his mother in the mouth and body slammed her to the floor, the newspaper said.
He then screamed, “I hope you die!” and choked her until she fell unconscious, police said.
When she regained consciousness, she managed to break away from her son and report the assault to a neighbor.
