College student kills mother in argument over grades

DEKALB COUNTY, Alabama - Officials said the son of a Mentone woman who was found beaten to death on Friday admitted to her death, and said it was the result of a confrontation over his grades in college.

Tyler Blansit (picture), 22, was arrested early Saturday morning for the murder of his mother, Sherry Blansit.

Blansit had been found beaten to death behind her home in Mentone.

Sheriff Jimmy Harris said Blansit confessed to killing his mother after they got into an argument over grades.

According to the sheriff, Tyler told investigators that he struck Sherry in the head with a baseball bat during the height of their confrontation.

Harris said it appears the mother's death was the result of blunt-force trauma to the head, but that an autopsy will provide further information. Sherry Blansit's body was transported to the Department of Forensic Sciences in Huntsville. More
