Rachael Hilyard, 35, was charged with first-degree murder, KWCH reported.

Police told KWCH that Davis and her grandson had gone to a home to get property, which belonged to her son, but Hilyard started attacking her.

Police say the 9-year-old was able to run away. He grabbed Davis’ cell phone from her truck and called the police.

Hilyard was hiding in the home and was taken into custody at the scene.

The boy was not hurt.

Officers found the victim’s decapitated body in the garage, KAKE reported. It was not immediately clear what was used to carry out the beheading.

“Why a good person? Why somebody like Micki who was loved by everybody? Micki had no enemies,” relative Gene Gardner told KAKE. “Why did this have to happen to her?”
