Brea, 31, a martial arts student, could be heard yelling, "Repent, repent, sinner, sinner,' over and over again," according to neighbors. He also yelled, "You never accepted Jesus."

His mom, Yannick Brea, 55, could be heard screaming just after 1am for help. She was also a survivor of 9/11 ... having worked at the Marriot hotel in the World Trade Center.

Neighbors are upset that NYPD officers waited an hour before entering the apartment, however cops claim they did so for their own safety.

Brea was taken to Kings County Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after his arrest.

The motivation behind the killing is still unknown.
