Teenager strangulates mother for scolding him over ‘poor grades’

Florida Teenager Charged With Strangling, Burying Mother

Deputies also have Dylan Ceglarek and Brian Porras, both 17, in custody and they are facing several criminal charges. Chitwood said the boy is one of the "top three sociopaths" he has ever encountered, calling him a "soulless individual".

"No sign of remorse whatsoever", Chitwood told reporters Saturday.

The boy left to school, and after returning home from school on Friday, he told deputies that his mother had vanished.

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said they brought Ramos out to the scene of the crime in the woods, where he said Ramos was excited to re-enact what happened. Authorities said he then used a wheelbarrow to load her body into her van, enlisted the help of two friends, and then drove to the River City Church in DeBary, Florida where he allegedly buried her body under a fire pit, according to a police statement.

"To watch how cold and callous and calculating he was, I think was probably the most shocking thing for all of us", Chitwood told KSAT's sister station in Orlando, WKMG. All our hearts break for this family, ' he added on Twitter.

"You'd have thought he was going on national television", Chitwood said.

Election Day to test Democratic resistance in Trump era
Ryan, who is retiring at the end of this year, said he still thinks Republicans can limit the damage and maintain the majority. But Brookings Institution expert John Hudak said it is also clear that Trump is a major issue for both parties this year.

Detectives responding to that call around 3:52 p.m. began investigating what initially was reported as a burglary, supposedly discovered by Ramos after he came home from school. Around midnight, it's alleged that he came out of his room, went into his mother's room and strangled her.

He described the boy as appearing "very proud of what he did" during his re-telling of the events.

Chitwood said Ramos confessed to murdering his mother all over a fight about his bad grades.

A 15-year-old aspiring homicide detective has been charged with first-degree premeditated murder after authorities said he strangled his mother and then recruited friends to help bury her body following an argument about his grades.

Detectives ultimately found Cleavenger's body in her burial site at River City Church in the early-morning hours Saturday.
