Teen stabs his mom 100 times then throws a party with corpse in the room

A 16-year-old Miami boy violently murdered his mother and then threw a house party with her body still laying in her bedroom in 2012. On Friday, the now 19-year-old Kit Darrant pleaded guilty to the murder and was given a 28-year prison sentence. Darrant told the judge:

"The man that I am now is not the boy that I used to be. Actions speak louder than words, and I intend to prove that to you."

As a 16-year-old, Darrant killed his mother during a typical after-school argument. He and his mother, 35-year-old Renette Emile, reportedly quarreled often about his taking her car without permission, smoking marijuana, and drinking alcohol.

The teen choked and stabbed his mother 100 times. He then skipped classes at Dr. Krop High School for a week. During that week, his mother's body remained on her bedroom floor. Darrant covered her with blankets and used detergent to try to hide the odor.

A few days after the murder, Darrant threw a party at his house for 60 classmates. One partygoer complained of the stench, but Darrant assured him that it was probably just the trash. During that week, Darrant even took care of his 3-year-old brother as their mother's corpse decayed in her room. Finally, The teen's aunt came to the house and discovered Emile's corpse. Defense attorney Christopher DeCoste said of Darrant's prison sentence:

"The murder of Rene Emile was tragic and Mr. Darrant publicly apologizes for his actions and the immense pain they have caused others. This deal is equally beneficial to both sides. It allows this young man to repay his debt to society yet still have a second chance at life."
