Man charged with murdering his mother in Millersville

A Millersville man faces murder charges after police say he killed his mother at her home on Saturday.

Anne Arundel police said officers were called to 8230 Daniels Purchase Way at 4:25 p.m. for a report of an assault.

Police say the citizen who called 911 had received a call from Torian Andrew Mack, 23, of the same address, stating that he’d assaulted his mother and she was in the home unconscious.

When officers arrived at the scene, police said they found his mother — Rhonda Mack-Dickerson, 53, who lived at the home — dead from an “apparent violent attack.” Police wrote in charging documents that Mack was “covered in blood.”

Mack began assaulting her during a verbal altercation, police said. Mack told officers that he was “tired of my mom calling me a liar” after he told her he was beaten up by the Ku Klux Klan, charging documents state.

“I told her I got beat up by the KKK and she called me a liar so I had to show her what it was like to get beat up by four or five grown men,” he told officers, according to charging documents. “She knows I’m a black belt in martial arts and knew what was coming.”

Police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure said he made these comments and more before police actually questioned him. He added there appeared to be no validity to his claim that he was assaulted by members of the Ku Klux Klan.

He told investigators that he’d been administering CPR for between 15 and 30 minutes before police arrived, charging documents state.

The Chief Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Dickerson-Mack’s death a homicide due to “multiple injuries to the head and neck,” police said.

Mack was arrested and charged with first- and second-degree murder.

He is currently being held without bond following a bail review hearing Monday morning, according to court records.

No attorney is listed as representing him in court records.

Mack was sentenced to 15 months probation in 2014 after he pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment and misdemeanor malicious destruction of property related to an incident regarding a fire in a home under construction and another marked with graffiti in Severn.
