Ramos also told Pagliari that his mother was abusive toward him and thought she might kill him one day.

Volusia County deputies arrested Gregory Logan Ramos on Saturday on a murder charge in the death of his mother, 46-year-old Gail Cleavenger.

Gregory's two friends, both 17-years-old, are facing charges of being accessories to a crime after the fact, authorities said.

Authorities said he then used a wheelbarrow to load her body into her van, enlisted the help of two friends, and then drove to the River City Church in DeBary, Florida where he allegedly buried her body under a fire pit, according to a police statement.

Nearby the home, deputies recovered the dumped property that was removed from the home in the fake burglary - computers and other electronics including a Playstation 4, a rifle and other items.

"He then got home and made his, in his own words, "Grammy-winning phone call to 911" to talk about this disgusting incident that did not really occur", Chitwood said.

He also tried to stage his home to make police think his mother was abducted and finally he made a 911 call to set his plan in motion.

The next morning, Ramos went to school and called police after he came home that afternoon to report that his mom was missing, the house had been ransacked and her van was still running in the driveway.

The son entered her room about 12:30 a.m. Friday, investigators said.

As the investigation continued, detectives say the teen's story about the alleged robbery began to unravel, and he confessed to strangling his mother.

Jacques countered that Porras should be in secure detention because he is charged with a "very serious crime". All our hearts break for this family. There, he buried the body beneath a fire pit.

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

Investigators learned in the confession from Ramos that he strangled Cleavenger to death in a fit of rage after an argument because Ramos received a D in a school subject.

The sheriff said the case has been one of the most disturbing and saddest he has encountered.
