Volusia teen accused of killing mom over bad grades remains in jail

According to detectives, the 15-year-old confessed to strangling his 46-year-old mother Thursday night after they got into a fight over a "D" he received in a class.

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.

During his confession he said he used a wheelbarrow to move her body into the family van and then he drove to River City Church 1.5 miles away where he buried her in a fire pit.

Ramos' attorney, public defender Larry Powers, appointed by the court, did not have much to say and agreed with the judge's decision that probable cause existed to detain Ramos on the murder charge. He said his mom was missing and her van was still running in the driveway. This suspect "matter of factly" admitted to everything, and said he thought he deserved a "Grammy [sic]" for his performance on the 911 call, Chitwood said. "It's not really a big place to bury his mom".

The boy left to school, and after returning home from school on Friday, he told deputies that his mother had vanished. During questioning, he calmly acknowledged killing his mother, police said.
