West Virginia beheading of Bo White case get weirder, killer Roena Cheryl Mills wanted police to let bring her heads

Court documents related to the beheading of Bo White has made the murder case even more bizarre. Roena Cheryl Mills was covered in blood, wearing a glove on just her left hand and carrying a pocket knife when deputies arrived at her home, only to have the killer scream “take me back and let me get my heads.”

Police found White, 29, beheaded and placed a gag order on the case, which kept details away from the press. Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney George Sitler told The Bluefield Daily Telegraph that it was unclear whether the victim was killed by the beheading or if he died before his head was severed.

White, 41, will be evaluated for mental instability.

While deputies interviewed the woman, they noted she held a side conversation with an invisible person Mills referred to as “Daddy.”

Mills was found to be in possession of narcotics and initially charged with obstructing, battery on an officer and simple possession.

Sitler told MetroNews, “Even though she’s only been initially charged with second-degree murder because there was some initial doubt about premeditation, [the] grand jury could certainly indict her for first-degree murder”.

Mills remained in custody in Raleigh on a $210,000 bail.
