THE BRONX - ? The Bronx teen accused of killing his mother and dumping her body was arraigned in court today.

Investigators say Tihesha Savage's 16-year-old son, Darwin Jackson, beat and killed the 34-year-old mother of two in their Mount Eden apartment and then put her body outside on Macombs Road.

Savage was found with trauma to the head, but the medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death.

Jackson is due back in court on Oct. 31.
