PRINCETON, W.Va. – A Virginia woman will spend the rest of her life in prison without the possibility of parole for decapitating her boyfriend in 2018, according to reports.
Roena Cheryl Mills, 43, of Rural Retreat, Va., was sentenced for her December conviction on a first-degree murder charge in the death of Bo White, 29, of Lenore, W. Va., Fox News reported.
White’s body was found at his home in April 2018 while his head was found in nearby woods.
A neighbor called police after seeing Mills covered in blood. She was wearing one glove, and a second glove matching the one she was wearing was found in the bedroom of White’s home, according to a criminal complaint.
The complaint said Mills gave a sheriff’s deputy a false identify and claimed she had been thrown through a glass door but wouldn’t disclose her attacker, according to Fox.
Mills was brought in for questioning and told a deputy, “You have to take me back and let me get my heads,” the complaint said.
The forensic pathologist testified that White had multiple sharp force injuries, including 13 stab wounds to the chest, two to the neck, two to the abdomen, and one in the back, with 37 incised wounds on his head, and multiple blunt force injuries, WOAY reported.
