Ramos stands charged with first degree murder, notes People, and cops aren't mincing words in describing the teen: Sgt. AJ Pagliari, who interrogated Ramos, called him "Very cold, calculating, unemotional", he said.
The 15-year-old boy confessed to strangling his mother, 46-year-old Gail Cleavenger, with a rope in their family's home early Friday then using a wheelbarrow to load her into her van and bury her beneath a fire pit, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said. Police say Ramos and his mother got into a bad argument after he came home with a "D" in one of his subjects.
WKMG reported that authorities sensed something was amiss and interviewed Ramos' two 17-year-old friends, Dylan Ceglarek and Brian Porras, who reportedly admitted to helping Ramos stage the burglary and bury Cleavenger's body. Around midnight, it's alleged that he came out of his room, went into his mother's room and strangled her.
The teenager was arrested early Saturday after the body of 46-year-old Gail Cleavenger was found buried under a nearby church's fire pit, Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood told news outlets. After the argument, the mother called the father who was in Seattle on a business trip.

"The decision on whether to charge the defendants as adults has yet to be made", Hathaway said. He also reportedly said that his mom was missing.
Officers also found computers and other electronics including a Playstation and a rifle at a different location in DeBary that had been moved while staging the burglary. All our hearts break for this family. The teen enlisted the help of two friends, both 17, to stage the burglary, police said. "By all accounts she was an awesome human being", Chitwood said.
The boy left to school, and after returning home from school on Friday, he told deputies that his mother had vanished. Chitwood said the boy is one of the "top three sociopaths" he has ever encountered, calling him a "soulless individual".
The sheriff continued: 'We brought him out here (Friday) night to reenact the crime scene and you might have thought he was going on national television'.
