A Russian granny was charged with murder after she crushed 50 sleeping pills into her friend’s food before severing her head and boiling it in a saucepan.
Tamara Samsonova, 68, also dubbed ‘granny ripper’ was accused of killing Valentina Ulanova, 79.
CCTV footage showed the woman carrying the saucepan out of her apartment and throw it in the bin, the Daily Mail reports.
An official statement said: 'Then, in order to conceal the committed crime, she dismembered the body of her victim and placed the parts in different places near the apartment block.'
'She used a handsaw to slice up Mrs Ulanova, for whom she was a carer, in July last year, using plastics bags to dispose of other body parts.'
A psychiatric examination found Samsonova suffers from ‘chronic mental illness in the form of paranoid schizophrenia.'
'A criminal case was sent to the court for a decision on compulsory medical measures.'
Investigators fear Samsonova may be responsible for up to 11 more killings, however, she refuses to cooperate.
Samsonova is now in a psychiatric hospital.
