A woman from the United Kingdom has been convicted of murder after killing her friend and then forging the victim’s will to collect 95% of her estate, according to FOX Digital.

Mitchell went to the 67-year-old woman’s home, hit her in the head with an entity, then proceeded to decapitate the woman placing her remains in a suitcase.

Mitchell was arrested on July 6 and officials later discovered Chong’s forged will in Michell’s home.
