Ohio Boy Charged Killing Mother After Telling Neighbor Of Murder. Ohio boy charged with killing mother after he confessed to neighbor. Authorities said the juvenile told a neighbor about the murder.

The boy appeared Monday in a Holmes County courtroom with his attorney, who entered the juvenile equivalent of a not guilty plea.

A judge ordered that the boy remain in Richland County Juvenile Detention as authorities investigate the shooting.

Holmes County Sheriff Tim Zimmerly says 46-year-old Deborah McVay was found dead from a gunshot wound to the head Sunday night in her home in Big Prairie, about midway between Cleveland and Columbus.

Authorities say officers went to the home after a neighbor called a sheriff's dispatcher to say McVay's son came to her home and said he'd just shot his mother.
