HOLMESVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio sheriff says a 10-year-old boy is in juvenile custody after telling a neighbor he had shot and killed his mother.
Holmes County Sheriff Tim Zimmerly says 46-year-old Deborah McVay was found dead in her living room Sunday night in Big Prairie, midway between Cleveland and Columbus. Authorities went to the home after a neighbor called a sheriff's dispatcher to say McVay's son had come to her home and said he had just shot his mother.
The boy is being held in Richland County Juvenile Detention and will appear in court sometime on Monday.
A woman who answered the phone at McVay's home said she had no comment and hung up.
