Police say an 80-year-old woman was fatally beaten by her son in their home in the Far Rockaway section of Queens. Liudmila Mamontova was killed inside Apt. 6C at 711 Seagirt Boulevard, a high-rise, just before 3:30 a.m.

Her 56-year-old son, Sergevi, allegedly bludgeoned her in the head with her crutches.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The son, who was described as troubled, called 911 after the crime. He reportedly told detectives he doesn't know why he did it.

He was taken to St. John's Queens Hospital for treatment of several supposed self-inflicted wounds to his lower torso.

Charges against him are pending.
