Osage boy accused of killing mom charged with sexually assaulting her


Court records say a 13-year-old Osage boy suspected of shooting and killing his mom may have also tried to sexually abuse her.

The boy is being held at the North Iowa Juvenile Detention Center in Waterloo.

Authorities think he shot his 37-year-old mother, Gretchen Crook several times.. using a .22 rifle Saturday night.

He called 911 after it happened.

"The emotions of the young man from what I've been told is his demeanor was very calm and kind of stoic. Almost like he was in shock also," said Mitchell County Sheriff's Deputy Greg Beaver. 

Right now Gretchen Crook's son is charged with assault with attempt to commit sexual abuse against his mother.
