15-Year-Old Florida Boy Charged With Strangling His Mother

A 15-year-old boy in Florida was arrested Saturday and charged with strangling his mother, authorities said. Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood told reporters the arrest came after the body of the teenager’s mother, 46-year-old Gail Cleavenger, was found buried at a nearby church. Investigators say the teenager, identified as Gregory Ramos, confessed to killing his mother after the two argued over his grades, and he then allegedly enlisted the help of two 17-year-old friends to make it look like someone had burglarized the family’s home. The two other teenagers also face charges.
