Kit Darrant was having a party.
As he blasted his music and laughed with friends Tuesday night, however, Darrant was hiding a dark secret.
His mother’s butchered body was decomposing in the next room.
Darrant, a 16-year-old student at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School, later told investigators he killed his mother, Renette Emile, 35, because he was angry at her for scolding him about staying out late on a week night.
Then, according to a Miami-Dade police arrest affidavit, he cleaned up the blood, sprinkled her body with deodorizers and laundry detergent and wrapped it in bedsheets.
That was March 27.
Four days later, he threw a party.
