Jacob Seth Cobb is charged with murdering Tamara Lee Mason, his mother. Brother Andrew Quinton Cobb is being charged as an accomplice after the fact.
The Christmas Yahtzee argument with his mother, Tamara Lee Mason, was apparently the last straw for 17-year-old Jacob Seth Cobb.

Police say he wrestled the 48-year-old woman into a choke hold on the floor of their home in Alberta, put a bag over her head, tightened it in place with a belt and killed her.

Then he and his brothers, 18-year-old Andrew Quinton Cobb and 25-year-old Dylan Cody Clemens, spent the winter dithering over what to do with her body.

Meanwhile, they told local authorities their mom had simply vanished after the Yahtzee argument.

Brother Andrew eventually told the cops he witnessed the murder. And Clemens spilled the beans to the cops in a May criminal complaint against brother Jacob. Clemens described how the three siblings first loaded Mason's body into a car and intended to dump it in South Dakota, but changed their minds and returned home to Alberta.

Back home, they loaded her body into a garbage can, and stored it in the trunk of a Chevy Lumina on Dec. 26. Clemens then drove it to a friend's house with the idea of incinerating the body in an outdoor furnace.

Jacob Seth Cobb, Andrew Quinton Cobb and Dylan Cody Clemens couldn't figure out what to do with their mother's body.
But there was another change of heart, and Clemens brought Mason's body home a few days later, storing it in a shed where he started digging a grave. In she went, with her purse, and that's where she stayed until July, when police got a tip about the missing woman and started digging around.

Jacob Seth Cobb has now been charged with second-degree murder. Andrew Quinton Cobb has been charged as accessory after the fact. County Sheriff Randy Willis tells Fargo's Forum newspaper that Clemens has yet to be charged.

well...actually....im 100% sure they took the blame from the oldest.  the oldest was to be kicked out on xmas day.  the oldest was also arrested years ago for beating the hell out of his mom...and...the mom beat the hell out of the kids almost every day.  lost custody of one of the four boys for just that reason.  the poor boy went insane but was reformed after being adopted by a psychologist.  theres way more to the story than just a supposed yahtzee game..especially considering they didnt even own any board games.

Well they're going to die in the most cost effective manner possible. Their remains will be cremated and they're ashes will be spread in a prison graveyard. Everyone knows them personally now, they are murderers...do you really think it matters what they order at starbucks?

I think a touch of real knowledge about this case is necessary.  These boys have been physically and mentally abused since they were born.  The mother was a piece of real trash.  This does not justify murder but Jacob broke in the moment.  Local law enforcement had knowledge of the boys abuse for years (dozens and dozens of reports on file) and yet did little to nothing about it.  You simply have to pause and ask yourself how and why law enforcement is simply incapable of doing there job, even outside their "book of rules".  Don't you think if the system hadn't failed these guys there would have been a different outcome?OK, so we charge the boys with the crime, it should be that way.  But let's demand some form of punishment for those who failed these boys in the first place.  Let's demand changes to the rule book, the laws.  Let's demand that law enforcement require more training and education than a 2 year community college course in law enforcment while they exclude these military monkeys from the Marine Corps and the Army as law enforcement personel...duh!  How do I qualify these remarks?  I'm ex-military, ex-law enforcement, a victim of poor social services and piss poor law enforcement.  I've had two judges canned, 16 police officers and sheriffs deputies and 3 social workers fired in the past 25 years.  And I'm just getting started.  We need to hold the authorities accountable.  Remember they work for us, not the other way around.  Please consider these remarks while going forward in your lives.  Follow the laws but don't become a victim of them.  Demand more, everyday.  And do your job as tax payers and citizens.

they were beat since they were little.  thats how their home life was.  she drove one of her four boys insane.  notice how hes never mentioned?  thats because he was adopted out after she drove him insane and after he was molested by his oldest brother continuously.

this is exactly the case.  she even lost one of her four boys because of that reason.  he pretty much went insane and was adopted by psychologist and is now in medical school.  if anything it was years of abuse that lead him to finally snap.  and i dont even believe he did it.  i think hes taking the fall.  shes abused those boys since they were little.  im talking two years old little.
