Wichita police say a nine-year-old boy called 911 to report that his grandmother was being attacked. When police arrived at the scene, they found a 63-year-old woman decapitated.

Police say the woman, Micki Davis, and her grandson had gone to a home near Rita and Elizabeth to get property, which belonged to her son, but a 35-year-old woman inside started attacking her.

Police say the nine-year-old was able to run away. He grabbed Davis' cell phone from her truck and called the police.

Police say the suspect, identified as Rachael Hilyard, was hiding in the home and was taken into custody at the scene.

The boy was not hurt.

Police say the suspect was an ex-girlfriend of Davis' son.
