The woman accused of decapitating another woman in April of 2017 waived her preliminary hearing and entered a not guilty plea Tuesday.
Rachel Hilyard is charged with first-degree murder for the death of 63-year-old Micki Davis, the mother of Hilyard’s ex-boyfriend.
Police said Davis went with her grandson to Hilyard’s home in the 1400 block of West Rita to pick up property that belonged to her son. That’s when Hilyard allegedly attacked and killed Davis. The boy ran away and called 911.
The judge set a jury trail date for September 25 at 8:45 a.m.
