On June 18, 2020, Cody Allen Wade, 33, left a cookout and headed to his mom’s house in Brazil.
On the way, he stopped at another man’s house to tell him he was about to kill someone. The man tried to talk him out of it, but was unsuccessful.
Wade then walked the several blocks to his mother’s home, where he and his mother lived. On the way, he called his mother and left her a voicemail.
However, Wade never hung up the phone call and ended up recording the entire attack, including him stabbing the victim, Carl Haviland, four times, officials said.
In his sentencing order, the judge wrote, “The defendant repeatedly stabbed Carl Haviland not only in front of the defendant’s own mother but did so in spite of her efforts to physically prevent him from committing the crime,” the New York Post reported.

After stabbing Haviland, Wade kicked and taunted his victim, authorities said.
At the time of the murder, Wade was on parole for arson. He was released from jail in March 2020, just two months before the murder took place, officials said.
