A 22-year-old Alabama college student no longer plans to disrespect his mother nor waste her money for tutiton with his poor showing in school.
That’s because he killed her.
An Alabama college student killed his mother during an argument over his bad grades, law enforcement officials said, and he was being held without bond in a county jail Monday.
Tyler Ryan Blansit, 22, confessed to killing Sherry Ann Blansit, 45, in Mentone — about 75 miles east of Huntsville, DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris said in a statement. Multiple news outlets have reported that she was found dead in her backyard Friday.
Blansit told investigators that he and his mother argued over his grades and that he struck the woman in her head, Harris said. The woman appears to have died of blunt-force trauma, he said.
A University of Alabama-Birmingham directory said Blansit was studying biology. A university spokesman confirmed that Blansit was a student, but officials couldn’t comment further because of student privacy regulations.
Mentone police Chief Brad Gegg said the town’s population is roughly 400 and the slaying is the first to be reported in the community in years.
Dude’s face pretty much sums up whether he’ll finish his degree in prison or not.
