A man is accused of killing his grandmother and great-grandmother whose corpses he lived with for up to 20 days.
Jaryd Ramos, 22, is charged with the murder of his 90-year-old great-grandmother Regina Gromley and her 59-year-old daughter, Barbara Gromley, on November 5 in Montgomery County, Texas.
Police said Ramos said he was ‘tired of them’ while showing no remorse as he confessed to the murders on Monday. He reportedly moved into his great-grandmother’s home this summer.
Barbara’s body was discovered in a ‘large plastic tote hidden behind a shed’ behind an abandoned local church on Sunday.
Police say Ramos told them that he dumped the body behind the church on November 25 – after he had been living in the home with the corpses for approximately 3 weeks.
Investigators responded to Regina Gromley’s home to investigate a missing persons report that was filed for both Regina and Barbara.

Ramos allowed officers to search his home and Regina’s body was found in a garbage can in the backyard. Shortly after discover, Ramos confessed to the killings, according to The Joplin Globe.
He later told authorities the bodies were in the home for a ‘little while’ before he moved them.
Leutenant Scott Spencer, with the Montgomery County sheriff’s office, said: ‘He had done a lot of research and a lot of careful planning into what he had decided to do with the bodies in order to alleviate some of the smells or problems that could come from a decomposing body.’
Ramos is currently being held in Montgomery County jail and bond was not listed.
