A judge in Mercer County said further assessment is needed to evaluate the mental competency of Roena Cheryl Mills, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Bo Allen White, WVNS reported. Mills was dating White, according to his father.
The Mercer County man was killed in his home on Easter Sunday, but was decapitated and his head left in a wooded area where the suspect killer exited the woods covered in blood, according to court records unsealed Monday morning.
Mills, 41, according to court documents, was found at home  “covered in blood wearing a glove on her left hand, and she also had a pocket knife on the right-hand pocket of her pants,” when deputies responded on April 1 to the residence on Eden Valley Road in Lerona.
Using a fake name, Mills told responding deputies she was cut and left bloodied after being thrown through a glass door. She then got combative with officers and was placed under arrest. Once inside a deputy’s cruiser, Mills reportedly said: “You have to take me back and let me get my heads.”
Later that day, cops were tipped off to the decapitated body of a man found on another block in town. A different, unidentified part of his body was also found where Mills was arrested, WVNS reports.
Deputies were called to the second home after its owners saw someone suspicious in their driveway, WVNews reports. A glove matching one that Mills was wearing at the time was found earlier at White’s home.
The killing, according to the criminal complaint, was a “decapitation homicide,” Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney George Sitler said.
“That’s how it appears,” Sitler told West Virginia MetroNews.
A court-ordered mental status evaluation will determine if Mills can face trial in White’s brutal death. The case will then be presented to a grand jury in June and potentially faces a first- or second-degree murder charge, according to the prosecutor.
“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,” Sitler told the station.
Mills, of Rural Retreat, Virginia, remained in custody at the Southern Regional Jail in Raleigh County on $210,000 cash-only bail as of Monday.
While in custody at the jail, Mills had been talking about killing someone, employees told WVNS.
