WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A Wichita woman accused of decapitating her ex-boyfriend's mother faces a new charge after she allegedly tried to introduce a glass marijuana pipe into the Sedgwick County Jail.

A criminal complaint filed Friday accused 35-year-old Rachael Hilyard of unlawfully attempting to introduce the paraphernalia into the jail when she was booked on April 9 in death of 63-year-old Micki Davis. 

Hilyard is charged with first-degree murder is Davis' death. 

Police say Davis was killed after taking her 9-year-old grandson with her to Hilyard's home. The boy ran away when the assault started and called police on his grandmother's phone. Police say the child wasn't present when his grandmother died.

Police found Davis' body in the garage and Hilyard hiding in the home.
