The mother of infamous "genius psychopath" Paris Bennett, in prison for murdering his four-year-old sister when he was 13, has revealed how her son admitted to sexually assaulting the child before the horrific attack, new details state. 

Bennet is serving a 40-year sentence in a Texas prison for murdering his sister Ella in 2007. Bennet, after convincing their babysitter to leave early, stabbed his sister 17 times in an attempt to "punish his mother, Charity." When Charity Lee, from Abilene, Texas, came home from her waitressing job on the night of February 5, 2007, she was left horrified by the brutality of her daughter's killing. 

Bennett reportedly picked up a knife and attacked his half-sister while she was sleeping in her bed. He committed the murder after convincing their babysitter to go home. The 13-year-old then called 911 and admitted to stabbing the child. 

Lee, in her new memoir 'How Now, Butterfly?: A Memoir Of Murder, Survival, and Transformation', revealed how her son later confessed to watching "hours of violent porn" before sexually assaulting his sister and fatally stabbing her. An extract from a September 2010 diary entry has revealed how Lee confronted her son after finding porn entries on their internet history and hearing there was semen found on Ella's body and the bed she was sleeping on, the New York Post reports. It later emerged that Bennett had killed his sister to cover up the sexual abuse that occurred on the night of February 5, 2007. 

Lee, in her memoir published on Tuesday, also revealed that this was also why he did not complete his plan to kill his mother because it was "harder than he thought to kill someone." Bennet, who has an IQ of 141, had convinced Ella's babysitter on the fateful night to go home. After she left, the teen went into his sister's bedroom and attacked her. Later, he called a school friend on the phone and then called 911. 

Bennett, during the call with a 911 operator, said: "I accidentally killed somebody." The operator responded: "You think you killed somebody?" Bennett, through sobs, said: "No I KNOW I did. My sister...I feel so messed up." The 13-year-old was taken into custody before authorities alerted Lee of what had unfolded.

The teen, during his first confession, claimed that he committed the murder to "punish" his mother because he was angry with her. She had briefly relapsed into drug use after getting herself clean. Lee reportedly overcame heroin addiction before she became pregnant with Bennett. However, when she relapsed, she resorted to cocaine.

"He sexually abused her that night, and he admitted the more violent he became, the more excited he became, ending in death for her and climax for him," Charity wrote in the disturbing extract in her memoir. She even described her son's stabs on her daughter's body, writing: "…his stabs were slow and methodical, not frenzied, not an uncontrollable rage. Not all were deep. Most were shallow jabs and punctures. He told the detectives he stabbed her and pulled the knife out slowly; that it felt like stabbing a mattress or a marshmallow."

Bennet is now 26 and continues to remain in a Texas prison, where Lee often visits him. She has had another son since then.
