A 21-year-old Florida man has been arrested for stabbing his mother to death allegedly "because she never pushed me to be a man."

Deputies responded to a report about a stabbing at a Kissimmee home and discovered a woman's dead body. They also found another woman with severe lacerations to her hand, reported the New York Post.

Matthew Sisley was arrested in connection with the incident Tuesday, the Osceola County Sheriff's Office said. The injured woman was Sisley's sister.

"Upon arrival, it was determined that one female was deceased, and another female had severe lacerations to her hands," the sheriff's office said in a statement posted on Facebook.

The mother was found in the living room with fatal stab wounds to her stomach, Sheriff Marcos Lopez said at a news conference.

Investigators identified Sisley as the suspect in the woman's death. He was located a short distance away from the house and was found covered in blood.

"We found him a few blocks away and have arrested him," Lopez added.

While speaking to investigators, Sisley confessed to the crime and said he intentionally stabbed his mother to death. He also noted he accidentally stabbed his sister during the incident.

"Do you think your mom deserved to get stabbed?" a detective asked Sisley and he replied "Yes."

When he was asked why he thought his mother deserved to be stabbed, Sisley said it was "because she never pushed me to be a man."

Sisley was also asked whether he regretted his actions. "No. I would do it again," he replied.

Lopez said there was "no history of violence at this house," the Osceola News Gazette reported.

Sisley was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was booked into the Osceola County Jail. The sheriff's office noted that he may face additional charges.

The suspect appeared before a judge Wednesday.

"So I'm going to hold him, no bond. Will be set for pretrial detention ... conditions just in case are no return to scene, no contact with victims or any witnesses, no weapons of any kind," the judge said, according to WESH 2 News.
