The 26-year-old son of a retired Manhattan supreme court judge fatally bludgeoned his mother with a piece of furniture at the family’s posh Upper East Side co-op Tuesday and then jumped 16 floors to his death, police and law-enforcement sources said.

Doug Solomon, 26, was found naked and bleeding in the courtyard of the East 79th Street building around 10:30 a.m. after the rage fueled-attack and was heard screaming on his way down, cops and witnesses said. 

“It was the loudest thud. At first I thought it was an air conditioning unit,” a resident of the building who declined to share his name told The Post.
