Sheriff: Daytona Beach-area teen killed mom after arguing over bad grade

Florida Teenager Charged With Strangling, Burying Mother

A 15-year-old Florida teen remains locked up after investigators say he strangled his mother following an argument over bad grades.

When police arrived at his home they found the front door kicked in, the house ransacked and Cleavenger's truck in the driveway with the engine running, according to a police statement posted on the department's Facebook page.

The DeBary teenager accused of strangling his mother to death because of an argument over school grades will remain in detention, a judge ruled Sunday.

Ramos enlisted the help of his friends Dylan Ceglarek and Brian Porras, both 17, to stage the crime scene, police 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. "I have a feeling this is a case we'll be hearing about for years to come".

The sheriff said authorities began investigating Friday afternoon, after Ramos reported that his house had been burglarized by intruders who stole computers, a Playstation 4, a rifle and other items. Around midnight, it's alleged that he came out of his room, went into his mother's room and strangled her.

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

"No sign of remorse whatsoever", Chitwood told reporters Saturday. "Very proud of what he did".

At first he drove to Daytona's Holly Hill area to dump her corpse but headed back to find a shovel before heading to the church. "He was a soulless individual who thought he was the smartest person in the room", Chitwood said.

Cleavenger returned home Friday night to discover his wife was missing, before Ramos confessed to killing her early on Saturday.

The boy used a wheelbarrow and the family van to take his mother's body to the River City Church and buried her under a fire pit, deputies said.

Chitwood said the teen left school early on Friday to stage a burglary at the home where he killed his mother, police said. "It's just beyond belief for me to understand that", Hackett said. All our hearts break for this family.
