A 15-year-old Florida boy was arrested over the weekend on murder charges after he admitted to strangling his mother with his bare hands and then burying her outside a church.
Police say Gregory Logan Ramos confessed to strangling his 46-year-old mother, Gail Cleavenger, while she slept. He told police they had gotten into an argument earlier in the day about his receiving a D in school.
According to the sheriff's department, Ramos called two friends over to help him stage a burglary scene inside the house. The trio then transported her body to the church, where they buried her underneath an outdoor fire pit. When Ramos returned home, he called police to report a burglary and said his mother was missing.
Investigators say they never bought his story and found his mother's body the next day. They also found a shovel and other tools used to bury her. Ramos later confessed and named his two friends, who are also facing criminal charges. (Miami Herald)
