Florida teen kills mother after dispute over his grades

Florida teen kills mother after dispute over his grades

Chitwood said the teen left school early on Friday to stage a burglary at the home where he killed his mother, police said.

Prosecutors charged him with premeditated murder and a judge decided on Monday that he will be held in jail without bond. After disposing of the wheelbarrow outside of town, Chitwood said Ramos enlisted the help of two of his friends, both 17, to help him dispose of the body and stage a burglary. He said his mom was missing and her van was still running in the driveway. The two other teens are facing undisclosed criminal charges, the sheriff's office said.

A 15-year-old DeBary boy is being charged with the murder of his mother after Volusia County sheriff's detectives investigating her disappearance today obtained his full and detailed confession.

At some point during conversations with investigators the teen confessed to carrying out the murder and staging the burglary with the two other teens.

The son entered her room about 12:30 a.m. Friday, investigators said.

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said the teen was motivated by "rage" as he carried out the killing.

Jacques countered that Porras should be in secure detention because he is charged with a "very serious crime".

Officials with the Sheriff's Office said the 15-year-old called 911 Friday, claiming to have found his home burglarized, his mother nowhere to be found and her auto running. There, he buried the body beneath a fire pit. The boy then went to school Friday morning and came home to report his mother as missing to police and their home ransacked by unknown intruders.

But Chitwood said detectives suspected the story from the start and brought Ramos in for questioning.

"To watch how cold and callous and calculating he was, I think was probably the most shocking thing for all of us", Chitwood said. "All our hearts break for this family", Chitwood tweeted on Saturday.

"The deputies and detectives who worked through the night and into the morning gave this case absolutely everything they had, and I hope the family knows that Gail has all of us fighting for justice for her. God bless Gail Cleavenger and all who knew and loved her".
