Brooklyn man charged in mother’s murder claims he was framed

CANARSIE -

A Brooklyn man charged in his mother’s murder is maintaining his innocence, telling News 12 cameras that he was framed.

Jayvon Mulzac, 28, walked out of the 69th Precinct today in handcuffs, accused of strangling his 70-year-old mother in July.

According to police, retired nurse Noreen Mulzac was found dead in her Canarsie home, her legs and arms bound.

Investigators wanted to talk to Mulzac since his mother’s body was found, at first labeling him a person of interest, but eventually identifying him as a suspect.

Mulzac was arrested in Massachusetts in August on an assault charge.  Police there notified NYPD detectives, and brought him back to New York where he was charged with second-degree murder.

According to police, it’s not the first time he attacked his mother.  In 2006, police say he violently robbed her at gunpoint.
