ROME – An Italian 28-year-old man beat his mother to death in the bathroom of their house on Saturday during a furious row sparked by her refusal to fetch him a glass of water, Italian media reported.

Ciro Ciccarelli, who has struggled for years with a drug habit and had a tempestuous relationship with his mother according to the reports, was found in an agitated state in the house in Scampia near Naples, with scratches all over his face.
