A teenager beat an elderly woman to death after mowing her lawn and trying to have sex with her, according to police in Ohio.

Niles police said that they have arrested 15-year-old Jacob LaRosa after being accused of murdering 94-year-old Marie Belcastro inside her home.

LaRosa, who is now 18-years-old, pleaded no contest to aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, and attempted rape.

Judge Wyatt McKay found LaRosa guilty of these charges.

Prosecutors are hoping for a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

According to the police investigation, LaRosa and Belcastro knew each other as the teen used to mow the elderly woman’s lawn.

One day, after Belcastro paid the teen $10 to mow her lawn, he forced himself into her house and tried to have sex with her.

When Belcastro pushed him away, he beat her to death.

He then fled the scene.

Police found LaRosa in his home.

He was drunk and throwing up in his bathroom.

His clothes, including his underwear, were covered in blood.
