Texas man accused of killing grandmother, great-grandmother

SPRING, Texas — A 22-year-old man has been charged with capital murder after authorities say he confessed to strangling his grandmother and great-grandmother a month ago at a Houston-area home.

Jaryd Ramos was arrested Tuesday evening after telling detectives he killed his grandmother, 59-year-old Barbara Gromley. and his great-grandmother, 90-year-old Regina Gromley, on Nov. 5 at the home in Spring, according to the Montgomery County sheriff's office.

Lt. Scott Spencer said Ramos told detectives he “was tired" of the two women and did not show any remorse.

Authorities say another family member had filed a missing persons report for Barbara and Regina Gromley on Nov. 26, and Ramos said he hadn't heard from them since they left for a doctor appointment.

On Sunday sheriff's office deputies responding to a call found the body of an unidentified woman stuffed into a large plastic tote behind a shed at an abandoned church in Spring. Spencer said that in an effort to determine if the body was related to the missing persons case, detectives talked to Ramos at the home he'd shared with the two women since moving there from Philadelphia over the summer.

The sheriff's office says that during a consensual search of the home, the body of Regina Gromley was found in a garbage can in the backyard. Shortly after her body was discovered, the sheriff's office said Ramos confessed to killing both Regina and Barbara Gromley.

The sheriff's office said that Ramos said that on Nov. 25 — three weeks after killing both women at the home — he left Barbara Gromley's body behind the church.

Spencer said the bodies were in the home for a “little while" before they were moved outside.

“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,” Spencer said.

Ramos remained in Montgomery County jail on Wednesday. Bond was not listed and jail records did not list an attorney for him.
