An arrest has been made in the death of a Mentone, Alabama woman.

Tyler Ryan Blansit, 22, is charged in the death of Sherry Ann Blansit, 45.   After an extensive investigation involving several law enforcement agencies Tyler confessed to killing his mother. Tyler told investigators that they had been in an argument over grades and that he struck Sherry in the head.  And it appears that her death was caused from blunt force trauma to the head area. Her body was taken to the medical examiner's for an autospy. Tyler remains in the DeKalb County Detention Center awaiting bond.
