A 16-year-old black Bronx teenager told police that he was responsible for the death of his mother, hours after her body was found discarded in a plastic container on a nearby street
Darwin Jackson confessed to shooting dead his mother, Tihesha Savage, 34, after the two of them got into a dispute about his curfew. Her remains were discovered in a grey bin on Macombs Road in the Mt Eden neighbourhood of the Bronx. She had been shot in the back of the head, officials said. It is unclear if Jackson had an attorney; he was arrested twice in 2012 for marijuana possession. He was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and criminal weapon possession.
