A 19-year-old California boy is said to have killed his mother then dismembered her body and placed it in a freezer.
Moises Meraz-Espinoza walked into a Huntington Park police station Friday afternoon and told officers that he killed someone and the body was still inside his home on Maywood Avenue.
When police arrived at the home they found Amelia Espinoza in the freezer and blood stains in the shower.
Relatives said the teenager, who lived in the Maywood apartment with his mother, had recently been depressed after his girlfriend was killed in a car accident.
Espinoza was charged with murder and held without bail.
