BROOKLYN - The actor accused of killing his mother with a sword was arraigned today in the hospital prison ward where he has been since his arrest.

Michael Brea, 31, was silent and did not enter a plea as he was charged with second-degree murder and criminal weapon possession.

Police say Brea was arrested this week at his Prospect Heights apartment for allegedly killing his 55-year-old mother, Yanick, with a 3-foot sword.

Brea had appeared in small roles on the TV show 'Ugly Betty' and in the movie 'Step Up 3D.'
