Jacksonville, FL — The teenager accused of killing his grandmother and burying her body in a shallow grave at his father's Neptune Beach home has pleaded guilty to second degree murder.
Logan Mott was charged with 2nd Degree Murder and Grand Theft Auto in November of 2017. His grandmother, Kristina French, was found buried in a shallow grave. In exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors have dropped the Grand Theft Auto charge.
Prosecutors said Mott, who was 15 at the time, stabbed and shot French. He was arrested in Buffalo, New York, while attempting to cross in to Canada.
Mott’s father and girlfriend returned home from a vacation on Nov. 22 and were not picked up at the airport by French as previously discussed. They took an Uber to the teen’s father's Neptune Beach home and found it was ransacked and guns were taken from the gun safe.
