A South Texas teenager has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering his mother and then defiling her body.
A Nueces County jury took less than an hour in deciding the life sentence for 18-year-old Kevin Jazrael Davis, who pleaded guilty earlier in the week to killing Kimberly Hill.
Davis smiled at jurors during the murder trial that heard how he struck his mother, Kimberly Hill, about 20 times with a hammer before sexually assaulting her corpse.
"Guess I lost my virginity to a dead corpse," he chillingly told detectives during the investigation.
"I wouldn't take back what I did. I did love her in a way."
Davis told investigators to that he deserved 100 years behind bars after claiming he wasn't mentally disturbed.
"I'm a terrible, disgusting person," he said.
"I don't have standards. I don't have morals. A body's a body. A piece of meat."
According to police, Kimberly Hill was choked with a cord and stabbed in the head before finally being killed with a hammer.
Hill's body was found undressed from the waist down.
The Corpus Cristi Caller Times reports that her son had 'grown weary with life and hated other people' before he snapped and murdered her.
Police say Davis decided against killing his sister, instead leaving a trail of blood throughout the house along with a message: 'Chase me. Sorry for the mess. KD.'
Davis called 911 the next day to say he had killed someone.
Jurors this week were shown a video of Davis' interview with detectives in which he acknowledged having violent fantasies toward women.
The Corpus Christi Caller Times reported that the teen told investigators he's sane and was aware of his actions in March.
