A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after allegedly strangling his mother to death and having sex with her corpse whilst an acquaintance looked on.
The boy, a resident of the state of Tennessee in the US, is charged with first-degree murder, felony murder and corpse abuse over the slaying of his mother, amidst legal wrangling over whether he should be charged as a juvenile (which would mean release at 19) or an adult (which could result in a life sentence).
For reasons not divulged, he strangled his 36-year-old mother to death, and then proceeded to have sex with her corpse, afterward dumping the body in trash can and leaving it there for several days until it was apparently discovered by the lady’s partner.
Also charged was a 36-year-old acquaintance of the boy,a black man, who is said to have watched as he killed his mother whilst doing nothing to prevent it and not reporting the case, and even suggesting the boy hide the corpse in the trash can. He also faces charges of murder and necrophilia.
Police are unhappy about releasing further details until the autopsy is completed.
