He told the Daytona Beach News-Journal he agreed with the judge's decision that probable cause existed to detain his client on a murder charge.
Jacques argued that the two need to be held in secure detention because they will no longer be under their parents supervision once they both turn 18 years old in December.
The next morning, Ramos went to school and called police after he came home that afternoon to report that his mom was missing, the house had been ransacked and her van was still running in the driveway. His father was out of town at the time, police said.
A GoFundMe page has been started for Cleavenger.
Suspect Gregory Ramos, 15, was one of them. "He is not a flight risk".
Tension could be felt in the court room between family members and the teens charged in the crime.
The mother's body was located at the fire pit at River City Church by police on Saturday morning after the teen confessed, the press release stated. Police say Ramos and his mother got into a awful argument after he came home with a "D" in one of his subjects.
He then reportedly used a wheelbarrow to move her body into a van before burying her under a fire pit at the River City Church early Friday, police said.
The attack took place early Friday morning after Cleavenger called her husband - the boy's stepfather - who was on a business trip in Washington State, and informed him about her son's D grade and the subsequent argument, according to police. She went to sleep around 11 p.m. Thursday, Chitwood said.
Investigators spent hours talking with the son, Chitwood said at the Saturday press conference.
Sgt AJ Pagliari, who interviewed Ramos Friday, branded him 'cold, calculated and unemotional'.
Officials with the Sheriff's Office said the 15-year-old called 911 Friday, claiming to have found his home burglarized, his mother nowhere to be found and her vehicle running.
Detectives found the computer and other items, including a PlayStation 4 and a rifle, that had been removed from the home to stage the burglary. There, he buried the body beneath a fire pit. He'd later tell authorities he deserved a Grammy for the "way he performed for the 911 call", Chitwood said.
