The suspect is accused of grabbing his mother from behind, choking and punching her until she fell to the ground, prosecutors said.

Once down, the son allegedly continued the attack, strangling and punching his mother before sexually assaulting her, the DA said.

The victim lost consciousness and then died, officials said.

“What should have been a celebration of Mother’s Day became a brutal, tragic nightmare for a Queens family,” Katz said in a statement.
