A 17-year-old Wadsworth teen accused of killing a 98-year-old neighbor, who was found dead in a "hidden location" inside her home has been found guilty, according to the Medina County Clerk of Courts.
Gavon Ramsay pleaded no contest Friday morning during his change of plea hearing. When a defendant pleads no contest, this is not an admission of guilt.
The judge found him guilty on the following charges: aggravated murder, murder, kidnapping, aggravated burglary and gross abuse of a corpse.
Margaret Douglas was found dead inside a closet in April after she was reported missing by an out-town of town relative after one of her friends had not been in contact with her since April 3.
Wadsworth police contend Ramsay walked through an unlocked door of the Douglas' home on April 6, strangled the widow and stuffed her body in a closet, and then covered her with clothing. Her wallet was also stolen and found in Ramsay's home during a search a couple of days after she was found dead, police said.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 3 at 1:30 p.m.
