BURLINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

The son of a Burlington woman found dead was charged with her murder Wednesday.

Charles Hunter Rohlman, 25, is held at the Kenton County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Tammy Rohlman's body was found last Thursday off an embankment 20 to 30 feet below Point Pleasant Road. The 54-year-old woman was positively identified Friday.

She was last seen Nov. 12 after attending her daughter's baby shower in Hebron. Several days later, her pickup truck was found abandoned at the Quality Inn in Erlanger.

Charles Rohlman eventually "confessed to attacking his mother with the intention to cause her death," according to Boone County court documents. 

He appeared in a Kenton County courtroom on unrelated theft charges Wednesday.

It's not clear when he will be arraigned on the murder charge and another new count of falsely reporting an incident in connection with the death of his mother.

He also faces charges of tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

Earlier this week, court records showed Charles Rohlman admitted that he "assisted in the process of removing the corpse" from his mother's Todd Drive home and putting it "in a vehicle that was seen in the driveway." He removed pieces of evidence from the crime scene and disposed of them in several locations, court documents claim.
