He then told officers he “took her body to the ravine behind his house, stuffed her into a sewer pipe and set her on fire,” court documents said.

Lewton also reportedly confessed to police that he “had been contemplating killing his mother about a week before the incident.”

The body of Nancy Lewton was found by police in a wooded area behind the house on Saturday after police received a missing persons report that morning, according to local reports.

Her 31-year-old son was subsequently arrested and charged with aggravated and premeditated murder.

Neighbors nearby have since claimed Lewton had been in trouble since childhood.

“We’ve known Travis since he was in high school and he was struggling then, like a lot of kids, but maybe a little bit more. And it just followed him as he grew up,” Ray Wagner, who lived on the same block as Lewton, told 13 ABC.

“Travis has fought since he was young. I think the fact that, as Ray said, it’s a quiet area just underscores that mental health issues are universal. We need more community resources, we need help. It doesn’t matter that nobody is immune,” added Cynthia Wagner.

“A mother’s love just never ends. No matter what your son’s mental illness is, I’m sorry it ended the way it did.”

The Toledo Police Department did not immediately respond to The Sun’s requests for comment.

According to WTOL, Lewton is set to face charges in Toledo Municipal Court on Monday.
