A Chicago woman has been charged in the brutal killing of her landlord, who was found dismembered in a freezer, after she was served with an eviction notice, authorities said.
Sandra Kolalou, 36, is charged with first-degree murder and concealment of a homicide in the death of 69-year-old Frances Walker.
Tenants inside the home where Francis rented rooms to people told police they heard screams around 2:30 p.m. Monday. They texted Walker and got a reply but authorities said the messages were sent by Kolalou, Fox Chicago reported.
When officers arrived at the home, they saw Kolalou walking toward a tow truck paid for by Walker’s credit card, police said. The other tenants said they were afraid of Kolalou.
Investigators believe she dismembered Walker on the first floor of the residence with “large butcher knives,” police said Wednesday. Authorities have not disclosed a motive for the killing but said Kolalou had recently been served with an eviction notice.
