Woman Beheads Grandmother after being released from jail for Beheading her Mother


Nicola Edgington pinned grandmother Sally Hodkin to the ground and slashed her throat with a butcher's knife, virtually decapitating her.

Moments before, she had attacked artist Kerry Clark, 22, at a bus stop but fled when she was disarmed.

Edgington, of Greenwich, south east London, was found guilty of murder and attempted murder by a jury.

In 2006, she was ordered to be detained indefinitely under the Mental Health Act for killing her mother Marion, 60, the previous year.

By 2009, Edgington was released to live in the community while being monitored by a doctor, nurse and social worker.
