Kansas woman on trial in beheading of ex-boyfriend’s mother

A Kansas woman is on trial for murder in the decapitation of her ex-boyfriend’s mother whose body was discovered in the suspect’s garage and her head was dumped in the kitchen sink.

Rachael Hilyard, of Wichita, is charged with first-degree murder in the April 2017 killing of 63-year-old Micki Davis.

The trial got underway Tuesday.

The Wichita Eagle reports that prosecutors said they would introduce evidence including testimony from the police officers who discovered Davis’ body in Hilyard’s garage, a taped law enforcement interview with Davis’ 9-year-old grandson who called 911 when Hilyard attacked his grandmother, and photos of the crime scene.
