Two undeniably creep-looking twin brother have been charged with murder for letting their mother slowly die from neglect after she fell in her home near Hobby Airport, Houston police say.

They then left her dead body on the floor for three months.

Sybil Berndt, 89, was discovered dead about 4:30 Monday afternoon in her home in the 8400 block of Glenscot. Her sons Edward Larry and Edwin Christian, both 48, "told investigators they were Ms. Berndt's caregivers and, on January 10, she had sustained injuries from a fall," HPD says. "The sons then left Ms. Berndt on the floor for three days without providing her medical attention, food or water. Ms. Berndt died on January 13."

The twins have been charged with murder. HPD did not give out any information on how they might be related to the victim, but KHOU reports she was their mother.

Update: As if this case needed to be any more odd, KHOU's Courtney Zubowsky is tweeting that a judge has determined the twins are flight risks because they have access to more than $700,000 in their mother's account.

They're psycho, and they should be relieved of oxygen.

Your opinions are all valid but you should not believe everything you read. There is more to some things then what meets the eye.

This is very disgusting, as I read this story I couldn't believe how neglectful they were. I believe they sexually assaulted their mother as well, because she was found badly decomposed With her gown up past her waist, just disgusting & creepy!!!

I thought it was Darryl and Darryl. Was wondering where other brother Larry was. That's just sad and sick though.
