‘It seems he just snapped’: Son, 40, is charged with murder after ‘stabbing his mom 15 times’ including in her neck, ear and hands as Brooklyn church where she was pastor mourns

A 40-year-old man has been charged with killing his mother, 61, who was a pastor with a ‘beautiful voice’ as her Brooklyn church expressed their grief for the ‘angel’.

Tracey Sydnor, the executive pastor of Upper Room Baptist Church in Bedford-Stuyvesant, was on Saturday stabbed at least 15 times, with wounds to her neck, ear and hands, by her son Kenji Francis.

Francis admitted in bone-chilling words to the heinous crime, prosecutors said Monday.

“What happened is I slit her up,” Kenji Francis, 40, allegedly told cops who arrived at the family’s East New York home Saturday to find Tracey Sydnor, 61, with cuts all over her face and neck lying in a pool of her own blood.

Francis has been charged with murder and unlawful activity-dangerous weapon, authorities confirmed on Monday.

He has no history with mental illness and has no prior arrests. 

They added that a knife, thought to have been the murder weapons, was recovered from a bedroom in Sydnor’s Brooklyn home on Wyona Street. 

The pastor was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital, but passed away, and Francis was taken into custody at the house.   

In a tribute post to the late-pastor, Yvonne Chambers wrote of Sydnor’s ‘love for God’ on Facebook.

She said: ‘I had no idea when we spoke Tuesday evening and decided to cancel our trip to Albany, Georgia that would be our last conversation. I am glad that we ended with I love you cuz. You were the consummate lady.

‘You didn’t hide your love for God. I am grateful for our conversations around how you knew you were called the ministry.

‘I being tone deaf envied in a good way your beautiful voice. I am grateful we finally got to celebrate your 60th birthday.’

In another heartfelt message, Ernest L Ward III, who knew Sydnor since they were a teenager, wrote: ‘She’s always been so supportive. Tracey’s voice was memorable…I often reminisce about the songs she led.

‘A true Angel on earth has returned home.’ 

Another tribute post to Sydnor from Terrence Read said: ‘Pastor Tracey Sydnor You Will Definitely Be Missed! I’m Praying For The Family As Well As My Upper Room Family!’ 

Sydnor had only been the executive pastor of the congregation for two full months, after being appointed in November. 

She had grown up attending the church and later led its choir, the New York Daily News reported. 

Bishop J. Carl Henderson offered prayers for her family during a sermon at the church on Sunday.

‘God bless you and please my sister, please my brother continue to pray for the family, her children, her siblings and her extended family and our church family as a whole,’ he said. ‘Our church is suffering a loss.’
