Recently, the Wichita authorities arrested and charged a 35-year-old woman with first-degree murder for decapitating her ex-lover’s mother. Reportedly, the 63-year-old victim was assaulted while heading to a house to pick up some items belonging to her son and left behind when the man decided to end the relationship.
Now and then you hear about a case so bizarre and blood-curling that makes you wonder about how such individuals are let loose on the street. Such is the case of 35-year-old Rachel Hilyard of Wichita, Kansas who thought that the best way to settle the score with her ex-boyfriend was to decapitate the individual’s mother. The case grows even darker, as we learn that there was a 9-year-old child involved.
According to the Wichita detectives who have investigated this horrendous case, Micki Davis, a 63-year-old woman, and her 9-year-old grandson were on their way to pick up some personal items belonging to her son and left behind at a house located at 1400 Block of West Wichita after the man decided to put a stop to a long-term relationship with 35-year-old Rachel Hilyard.
The facts show that Davis and her grandson arrived at the house sometime before 1:30 pm in order to retrieve the items. Moreover, it would seem that the woman allowed her grandson to tag along knowing that her son’s ex-girlfriend is no longer there.
However, upon arrived at the Wichita house, Davis was confronted by her son’s former girlfriend. After talking for a bit, the woman simply lost her wits and assaulted the 63-year-old woman right in front of the child.
During the scuffle, the 9-year-old boy managed to grab his grandmother’s cell phone and to flee the building. After losing sight of his grandmother’s attacker, the child dialed 911 and told the dispatcher what happened.
A couple of minutes later, a police car arrived to help the boy. After the child had told them what happened, the officers went to check the house. Seeing that no one was answering the door, the law enforcement officers asked the boy where the attack occurred. The boy pointed towards the garage.
Upon entering the Wichita house’s garage, the officer found the decapitated body of 63-year-old Micki Davis lying on the floor and called for reinforcements.
After investigating the neighborhood, the authorities finally managed to track down the woman’s murderer hiding in her house. Hilyard was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder. If she’s found guilty, she will spend the rest of her life behind bars.
