London: A 17-year-old boy in Britain was Tuesday found guilty of stabbing his mother 94 times after he lost his temper.

Kieren Smith killed 42-year-old Leah Whittle at her home in Weymouth, Dorset, July 21, the Daily Mail reported.

A jury at Winchester Crown Court found him guilty of murder. He will be sentenced Wednesday.

Smith inflicted knife wounds across his mother`s head, back and front in the two bedroom flat they shared, the court was told.

He then fled the flat, climbing out of his first floor bedroom window and down a drainpipe.

Smith has denied the killing and said that some men came down from Doncaster in Yorkshire to execute his mother because his brother had got into trouble over a drug debt.

He told police he saw the men attack his mother, and when they left he bolted the door, took some money from his mother`s purse and escaped.

A blade wielded by Smith severed the woman`s spinal cord, a post mortem of her bloodstained body revealed.

The murder weapons have never been recovered.

The court heard that the woman`s relationship with her son was often less than harmonious but the teenager told police the pair were close.
