I think to have a proper theory on this one, we'd need a lot more family/mental background. There had to be some reason that this guy in a moment of anger decided to take it out, in that way on his mother. Because right now it doesn't click. Get angry at your brother, rape your mom...there's a step missing. Kepp me posted.
