A request for reduced bond has been denied to a woman charged in West Virginia in the death of a man who was decapitated.
The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports 42-year-old Roena Cheryl Mills’ request to reduce her $200,000 cash-only bond was denied Thursday.
Mills is charged with first-degree murder in the 2018 death of 29-year-old Bo White, whose body found at his Lerona home while his head was found in nearby woods.
A criminal complaint says Mills later went to another home while covered in blood and armed with a pocket knife.
It says homeowners called police and the Rural Retreat, Virginia, woman gave authorities a fake identity.
It says she was brought in for questioning and told deputies “you have to take me back and let me get my heads.”
