UTICA, NY – The murder trial for the woman accused of stabbing and killing her mother is under way in Oneida County Court.

Tasheonia Hills, 26, is accused of stabbing her mother, 44-year-old Irene Williams, to death at the Humphrey Gardens Apartments in February of 2017. 

The prosecution Tuesday morning painted the graphic picture of the way Irene Williams died, saying Hills' brother claims his mother wasn't just stabbed, but that her body was mutilated.

The judge reminded jurors on instructions of finding a person legally insane.

Hills is charged with second-degree murder and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
