    A 15-year-old southwest Florida boy is charged with killing his mother.
     
    The Lee County Sheriff's Office investigators found the body 42-year-old Tamara Jean Davis on Sunday after neighbors reported a horrible odor coming from her North Fort Myers house. She had been reported missing on Aug. 24.
     
    Neighbors told the News-Press of Fort Myers that the smell had been getting worse over the past two weeks.
     
    Investigators arrested the son, who is not being identified by The Associated Press because of his age. He is being held in a juvenile detention facility pending a hearing on Sept. 18.
     
    Sheriff's officials spent much of Monday at the home gathering evidence.

    No further details were immediately available.
