'Soulless' teen murdered mom after argument over bad grade: cops

Authorities said they had been fighting over a bad grade Gregory received in school when he strangled her to death and got help from two of his friends to help bury her body and stage a robbery. Those friends, 17-year-olds Dylan Ceglarek and Brian Porras, are also in custody and facing multiple criminal charges.

"The case we worked on tonight was one of the most disturbing and saddest I've seen in my career", Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said in the statement.

Chitwood said the boy admitted killing his mother as she was sleeping.

The trio kicked in a door and removed items such as a computer, rifle and Playstation, before driving to a nearby church where they buried Gail's body underneath a fire pit. "She was such a small lady", Turner said.

Authorities said what started as an argument over a D letter grade at school ended with 46-year-old Gail Cleavenger being strangled to death in her bed as her husband was out of the state for business on Thursday night.

Perhaps more important, they would claim subpoena power to investigate Trump's personal and professional shortcomings. Indeed, there were reports that White House officials had told the president to brace himself for a very tough night.

Early Friday, the teen put his mother's body in a wheelbarrow in order to load her into a van, which he drove to River City Church, approximately one mile from the home, police said. On Friday, Cleavenger was reported to have disappeared.

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.

"He believed he was the smartest person in the room and he continued to tell us his theories of what he believed and why: what happened to his mom and where we should be focusing our attention", Chitwood said. But rather than expressing guilt or remorse, Chitwood said he seemed proud. I have a feeling this is a case we'll be hearing about for years. Around midnight, it's alleged that he came out of his room, went into his mother's room and strangled her. "All our hearts break for this family", Chitwood tweeted on Saturday.

The mother's body was located at the fire pit at River City Church by police on Saturday morning after the teen confessed, the press release stated.
