WICHITA, Kan. (WDAF/AP) — A Kansas woman has been sentenced to life in prison for decapitating her ex-boyfriend’s mother with a pair of kitchen knives.

Rachael Hilyard, 38, of Wichita, was sentenced Tuesday in the 2017 death of 63-year-old Micki Davis, the Wichita Eagle reports.

Hilyard apologized at the hearing, which several of Davis’ family members attended in person or watched via a Zoom call.

“I feel that even death would be too good for me now. … Every day and every night I am sorry,” Hilyard said.

Authorities said Davis was attacked after going to Hilyard’s home to pick up some of her son’s property on April 9, 2017. Prosecutors said Hilyard had planned the killing. Hilyard claimed Davis fell during a struggle over a painting, and that she carried out the decapitation because she thought Davis was dead and she wanted to release her soul from her body.

She told police “God was telling me to do it.”

The Wichita Eagle reports Davis’s 9-year-old grandson accompanied her to Hilyard’s home that day and ran for help after the attack started. He did not witness his grandmother’s death, the Eagle reports.
