MILWAUKEE - A man from Milwaukee is facing a murder charge for allegedly using a hammer to kill his mom's boyfriend. 

Prosecutors allege that it was the screaming and pleading of the woman's boyfriend, John Evans, that woke her up last Thursday.

When she walked into her living room, she saw Evans on the floor, bloody in the fetal position.

The criminal complaint said that her son, Olajuawon Bell, explained that he had taken care of it and that Evans tried to kill him. 

The mother told Milwaukee Police she was scared so she faked going back to bed. 

She eventually got out of the home and called 9-1-1.

The medical examiner says Evan was hit in the head and had 13 stab wounds to the face. 

Olajuwon Bell faces life in prison if he is convicted.
