Six people were arrested this week and accused of luring a 15-year-old boy to a Florida home, shooting him several times, burning his body in a fire pit and putting the remains into paint cans, authorities said.
The killing occurred Sunday in the central Florida city of Ocala, according to a statement from the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
Two females in the group allegedly lured the victim, Seath Jackson, to the home, and the group beat him with a wooden object. He was then shot several times with a .22-caliber gun, authorities said.
As the wounded teen attempted to flee, he was tackled and shot again, according to the sheriff's statement. His body was allegedly placed in a sleeping bag and burned in a fire pit outside the home.
His ashes were placed into several paint containers and thrown into a large garbage can, authorities said.
Authorities said they learned of the alleged plot from a member of the group who confessed to witnessing the killing.
Four adults and two minors were charged in connection with the killing.
Michael Bargo, 18; Charlie Kay Ely, 18; Justin Soto, 20; and two minors face first-degree murder charges, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said.
And James Haven, 37, faces charges of accessory to the crime for allegedly helping to dispose Jackson's remains and driving one of the suspects out of the area to avoid arrest, authorities said.
Sheriff's department documents gave little information about what caused the killing other than brief statements by suspects about a dispute and a growing hatred.
Soto's public defender, Bill Miller, would not comment on the case. Ely is not represented by an attorney, and Bargo will make his first appearance Thursday morning, according to Marion County courts.

Does Florida have an active Death row? If not they need one.
White folks can be animals too.
I’m very curious how one 15-year old boy managed to generate so much rage in so many people, most of them adults. What in the world could be the motive for such a horrible crime? Wasn’t money, and it doesn’t appear sexual assault was involved. So what was it?
Hey, we fried Ted Bundy!
One of our proudest moments.
Probably nothing. He was an easy victim.
He had apparently broken up with one of the females who had lured him there.
What a horrible, horrible thing for that poor kid. His family must be going through hell right now.
Ever been to Ocala? Parts of rural Ocala are like something out of “The Hills Have Eyes.” There are parts of Florida that remain very ingrained in the old Florida cracker lifestyle, and it would not surprise me one bit if that was the case here.
OK. So how well did the victim know these people? Did anyone know he was going out to their house? What caused this level of rage?
Yep, evil needs no explanation...
Here’s a clue:
Hell hath no fury..............
Likely he was a good student.
The term “cracker” is often taken as a racial slur along the lines of the “N” word. Let’s just call them ignorant dumbasses.
Nope. Hell hath no fury....................
...hideous, satanic murderers have no boundaries.
People who ever got near those two seem to end up in a lot of accidents and other predicaments.
He's going to watch a Shuttle launch.
