AL - Sherry Blansit, 45, beaten to death at her Mentone home, 29 May 2015
A 22-year-old University of Alabama-Birmingham student confessed to beating his mom to death in a row over grades, police say.
Tyler Blansit called Sheriff's officials out to the 'brutal' scene in Mentone, DeKalb County, Friday, and was found with scratches and a lump on his head. His mother's body was nearby.
Blansit has been arrested and no bond has been set.

Maybe irrelevant, but I'm curious about what his grades were.
What were Mom's expectations? His expectations? Different from one another?
At 22 y/o was he scheduled to graduate now but did not?
Mentone in DeKalb Co. AL is ~125 mi from U of AL-Birmingham,
so not a daily-commuting student.
Hoping her death did not leave any other children motherless.
Sad, sad, sad.

A University of Alabama in Birmingham student charged with beating his mother to death in May waived his preliminary hearing on Monday, sending the case on to a grand jury...
Blansit, a biology student at UAB, was on a break from school when he called sheriff's deputies to the house, claiming that he and his mother had both been attacked.
Sherry Blansit, who was beaten beyond recognition, was... a bank employee who suffered from multiple sclerosis...
