Police: Man kept mother’s body in motel for weeks after killing her

MILLBROOK, N.Y. — A New York man has been accused of strangling his mother, and then keeping her remains in a motel for seven weeks before moving her body to a small town in South Carolina.

The gruesome details came to light during a state police news conference Saturday in Millbrook.

Charles Cole, 48, of Pleasant Valley has been arraigned on a charge of second-degree murder in connection with the death of his mother, Betty Cole, 76. He is being held at Dutchess County Jail without bail.

Cole's wife, Ronalda Cole, 40, faces a charge of tampering with physical evidence, a felony. Police say she assisted her husband with transporting and disposing of Betty Cole's body. She was sent to Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.

"I find it hard to imagine the circumstances that would lead a son to strangle his mother, but also to live with the body in a motel room and then travel several states away and dump her like trash," state police Capt. John Ryan said.

Police allege Charles Cole strangled his mother on Aug. 16 at the Pleasant Valley Motel, where they both resided, and kept the body there for seven weeks.
