TPD: Man murders mother, burns her body

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – A Toledo man is charged with murdering his mother and setting her body on fire, according to court records.

Travis J Lewton, 31, attacked his mother, Nancy Lewton, 71, when she came home from work by choking her, court documents allege. After she stopped breathing, Lewton admitted to “taking her body down in the ravine behind his house, stuffing her in a sewer pipe, and setting her on fire,” court records show.

Detectives said they found Nancy Lewton dead in the wooded area behind the house.

Lewton told police that he has been “thinking about killing his mother for about a week prior,” court documents said.

Toledo Police officers said they received a call on Saturday morning around 9 a.m. for a missing person.

Police spent much of Saturday at the home located at 1865 Wildwood Road.

Ray and Cynthia Wagner have lived on the block for years. ” We’ve known Travis Since he was in high school And he had trouble back then, like a lot of kids but maybe a little bit more. And it just followed him as he grew up,” says Ray Wagner.

Neighbors say this isn’t the first time Lewton was violent with his mother. They tell 13abc he’s forced his way into the family home before and had multiple run-ins with the law. ”Travis has struggled since he was a young man. I think the fact that, as Ray said, it’s a quiet neighborhood just highlights that mental health issues are universal. We need more community resources, we need help. It doesn’t matter nobody is immune,” says Cynthia. ” A mother’s love just doesn’t end. No matter what your son’s mental illness is, and I’m sorry that it ended this way,” says Cynthia.

Lewton is charged with premeditated aggravated murder.
