Mother of 'zombie' attacker stunned

We are learning more about the man who was killed by Florida police as he was chewing off another man's face. Rudy Eugene's mother and girlfriend are now speaking out.

31-year Eugene was described to be in a "zombie-like" state when he was caught by police in Miami saturday. Police say Eugene was naked and growling like an animal as he attacked a 65-year-old homeless man.

But just that morning his girlfriend told the Miami Herald he was behaving normally. She said he "planted a kiss" on her lips and told her he loved her before heading out.

CNN's Erin Burnett speaks to CBS 4 Miami reporter Peter Dench, who spoke with Eugene's mother.

    i cant believe people are doing this crap, and a psychologist wants to study this more, they need to stop all that crap from ever getting on our streets period, and charlie sheen needs to be whipped with a razor strap for endorsing that crap bath salt in the first place, the courts need to hold all of these actors responsible and charge them with the crime because many young people see them doing and promoting dangerous drugs, and think wow that looks and sounds cool , they need to be held accountable.
