A man fatally stabbed his 47-year-old mother during a loud dispute in their Brooklyn apartment, according to police.

Authorities say Alfonette Scarder was stabbed several times inside her second-floor apartment on St. Paul's Place in Flatbush just after 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Her 26-year-old son was arrested at the scene and charges are pending.

He appears to suffer from bipolar disorder.

It was the second son to kill his mother in Brooklyn in two days. On Wednesday, a 23-year-old Brooklyn man was charged with bludgeoning his 45-year-old with a brick in their Brownsville apartment.
