A pensioner dubbed 'The Granny Ripper' who killed her elderly friend before severing her head and boiling it in a saucepan has been jailed for life.
Tamara Samsonova, 68, sedated her friend Valentina Ulanova, 79, with a 'massive overdose' of 50 sleeping pills - crushed into a salad - before hacking her body to pieces.
She was seen on CCTV carrying out a pan containing the head.The pensioner was arrested after stray dogs sniffed human remains close to the block of flats where she killed and dismembered the woman for whom she acted as carer.Samsonova - who once worked in a hotel catering for foreign tourists - refused to co-operate with investigators on up to 11 more feared killings which were hinted at in diary entries she wrote in Russian, English and German.'We may never know the extent of this granny's killings,' said one source.She is also suspected of butchering several lodgers, her husband, and her mother-in-law - who all disappeared without trace.One extract from her notebook reportedly read: 'I killed my tenant Volodya, cut him to pieces in the bathroom with a knife, put the pieces of his body in plastic bags and threw them away in the different parts of Frunzensky district.'Blood believed to be from another lodger, named Sergei Potyavin, 44, was reported to have been found in her bathroom, but so far she has not been charged with his murder.
