A Brooklyn man with a criminal history of antagonizing his foster mother pleaded not guilty in Brooklyn Supreme Court on Friday to allegedly strangling her to death inside her Canarsie home over the summer.

Noreen Mulzac, 70, was found dead inside her ransacked home, bound with electric cords and strangled on July 18, according to court documents.

Prosecutors pinned the murder on her foster son, Jayvon Mulzac, 28, extraditing him to Brooklyn on Thursday after he spent about four months in a Massachusetts jail for misdemeanor assault.

When Pittsfield, Massachusetts police arrested him in August, he allegedly began quoting passages from the Bible and asked for his lawyer, court documents showed.

Five days before his mother was found, he was caught driving without a license on the Taconic Parkway with her credit cards. He then told police that his mother had an order of protection against him for previously robbing her.

“The dastardly killing of a beloved senior citizen, allegedly by her own son, is truly shocking,” Brooklyn District Attorney-elect Eric Gonzalez said in a statement. “We are committed to bringing this defendant to justice for this brutal and unspeakable crime.”

Supreme Court Justice Neil Firetog ordered Mulzac be held without bail on Friday to return to court on Feb. 14, 2018.

He faces up to 25 years to life in prison if convicted of the second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and first-degree unlawful imprisonment charges.
