Santa admits he killed his cousin.

The Boston Herald; 12/21/2005; Sweet, Laurel J.

Byline: LAUREL J. SWEET

A Dorchester man named Santa gave his conflicted family the yuletide gift of contrition yesterday by 'fessing up to killing his cousin at a Christmas party two years ago.

Torn between anguish and fidelity, Benjamin Santa's tearful mother would speak no evil of her son, even as he was spirited away in chains from a Boston courtroom.

"I couldn't even hug or kiss him," Luz Caban said of Santa, 24, the oldest of her four children. "There's no Christmas for us."

Santa, wearing sunglasses, his braided hair pulled back in a ponytail, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 14 to 15 years in state prison by Suffolk Superior Judge Elizabeth Donovan.

A middle-school dropout who picked up work as a cook, Santa fatally stabbed his cousin, 44-year-old Jose Acevedo, Dec. 28, 2003, when Acevedo stepped in to defend their grandmother, Angela Caban, from Santa's wrath.

Santa, who is bipolar and suffers from an anxiety disorder, had not medicated himself in two weeks when he plunged a kitchen knife into Acevedo's gut after Acevedo tossed a chair at him.

Hours after the attack, Assistant Suffolk District Attorney Mark Hallal told Donovan Santa turned up at Boston Medical Center and said, "he was depressed and suicidal. He stated that he had stabbed his cousin by accident while shielding himself from a chair."

Fearing his 70-year-old grandmother won't live to see him hang another stocking, Santa was granted permission to pose for a photo with her.

Santa's mother said his sentence amounted to a lump of coal.

"Nobody holds a grudge against him," she said.

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode

Bipolar disorder - as the name implies - involves two distinct set of symptoms. One set throws the individual down into the depths of a massive depression. The other places the individual who suffers with bipolar disorder at the top of a peak manic episode.

Most everyone can eventually recognize the warning signs of an impending depressive episode related to bipolar disorder. More likely than not, individuals with bipolar disorder try very hard to avoid it.

However, for many individuals with bipolar disorder, it's more difficult to recognize the signs of an impending manic episode. After all, a manic episode of bipolar disorder can be mistaken in some cases - especially in the very early formation -- for the lifting of the corresponding mood swing of the depression.
