Help with stair molding

I am new here but have been lurking for some time .I am having trouble with the trim that goes on top of the skirt board on my stairs . I don't think that it is rocket science but I have been wrong before.
The angle on the stair at this corner is 114 and the angle on the sheetrock corner is 90. I can't seem to get this right . I am attaching pics to make things clearer.Help with stair molding-hpim2641.jpg

I would miter the back side of the return piece where it meets the wall on I think I'm seeing 25 degrees so it is on the same angle as molding going up the stairway.

Totally agree, miter the back side of the return to match the angle of the stairs.
