As Jan Ransom first reported in today's Daily News, police Monday night charged a 16-year-old with killing his 37-year-old mother and then dragging her body into an alley behind their South Philadelphia home this weekend.

Police Tuesday identified the teen as Kendall Anderson. He lived with his mother, Rashida Anderson, on Jackson Street near 5th.

He was arrested Monday and charged as an adult with murder for beating 37-year-old Rashida Anderson to death with a hammer and piece of a chair at their home, police said.

Anderson reported his mother missing Saturday but police have not released a motive for the alleged killing.
