Daughter accused in fatal beating of 85-year-old mom who left her out of will


A Fort Lauderdale woman who said she was angry about not receiving an inheritance beat her mother, who later died from her injuries, police say.

Gabriela Perero, 53, is facing charges of premeditated murder and aggravated battery on a person 65 years of age or older. She was denied bond during a court hearing Monday.

Perero told police she had been temporarily living with her 85-year-old mother, Luisa Perero, at the mother’s condo in the 600 block of Tennis Club Drive.

She said she became enraged that her siblings received an inheritance while she was caring for her mother and was left out, the police report said.

The daughter told a detective she began ransacking papers and breaking picture frames on Thursday night. She pushed her mother to the floor, grabbed her by the arms and “ripped her skin off,” the report quotes Perero telling an investigator.

Perero also described grabbing her mother’s neck with both hands and squeezing, police said.
