An almost demure looking Roena Mills in court on Tuesday, Dec 3, for the beginning of her decapitation trial. Roena Mills is accused of chopping 29 year-old Bo White’s head off, before texting pals asking them to party. She is said to have been sleeping with both Bo and his father Jimmie White
A west Virginia stripper had sex with both her boyfriend and his son before decapitating the son and texting friends saying ‘Let’s party’, a court heard.
Roena Cheryl Mills, 43, reportedly bashed 29 year-old Bo White’s head until he was unconscious before decapitating him in Lerona, West Virginia, in April 2018.
Roena Cheryl Mills, 43, of Rural Retreat, Va., is charged with first-degree murder of Bo White, 29, at his Clover Lane house in Leron on Easter Sunday in 2018
Prosecutor David Pfeifer explained what allegedly happened after the victim was knocked unconscious, saying: “She called friends for help, and got none… ‘[She called a friend called John Fleming] wanting a chainsaw… she did not get it. ‘She went back and got a kitchen knife and cut off his head.”
Bo White’s body was found in his home on April 1, while his head was discovered in a wooded area nearby. The victim was the son of Mills’ boyfriend, James “Jimmie” White, Court documents indicate.

During opening arguments, the prosecution said Mills bludgeoned Bo White until he was unconscious, then later cut off his head with a kitchen knife and stabbed him repeatedly.
Mills is then said to have brandished several other knifes and mutilated the dead man’s corpse.
The stripper, who is on trial for first-degree murder, is then accused of leaving White’s body inside his home and dumping his head in a nearby wooded area.
She reportedly rifled through White’s pockets for ‘pills and money’, then texted her friends asking them to party with her, prosecutor David Pfeifer said.
After being picked up by sheriff’s deputies close to Bo’s head the next morning, Mills was taken to jail, where she allegedly told staff: ‘You have to take me back to get my heads.’
Mills worked at a Strip Club called Southern X-Posure, and is said to have come into contact with boyfriend Jimmie White and his son Bo after they began visiting.
Her defense attorney Sid Bell explained: ‘Bo White and his father, Jimmie White, fed her drugs for sex.’

Mills appeared in court on Dec 3, sporting a far more demure appearance than during previous hearings, the Bluefield Daily Telegraph reported.
Her ratty blonde hair had been replaced by a conservative brown bob, and she wore a plain white sweater and T-Shirt which covered up a chest tattoo.
Bell told jurors that Mills was a victim of mistaken identity, and that she had been battered by a previous husband before turning to drugs.
He implied that Jimmie White killed Bo after catching his son and Mills together, although Jimmie White faces no criminal charges.
Bell said Jimmie White had told Mercer County Sheriff’s deputies that he’d seen Bo’s body while visiting his home, but believed his murdered son was playing a trick on him. He added: ‘They didn’t submit the DNA from the father (of Bo White).
‘This is a person who had a motive to harm his son because of his relationship with Roena Mills.’
Mills denies the charge she faces. Her trial continues.
