On Christmas Eve, a Missouri woman called police around 11pm to report she'd killed her boyfriend with a sword, authorities say. Cape Girardeau police arrived to find Brittany Wilson, 32, with bloody clothes outside the home she shared with her boyfriend, Harrison Stephen Foster, 34, KFVS reports. A sword was also lying in the front yard, the AP reports. Wilson allegedly told police she and Foster took methamphetamine earlier that day, and that she believed her boyfriend had had entities living inside him for months. She stabbed him to set him free, authorities say she told them.

Foster was found dead in the bedroom with multiple fresh stab wounds. Wilson, who also allegedly told police she believed Foster had been harvesting body parts from other people, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. She was being held Sunday in lieu of $2 million bond. Her mug shot, in which she is smiling for the camera, was getting a lot of attention online from places like the New York Post.
