Woman kills her mom to read books in jail? WTF.

A woman told police she strangled her mother with a rope so that she could go to jail and read books.

Louise Jekowski, 53, called police, telling them she had strangled her mother to help her die, according to an arrest affidavit. Jekowski added that she was ready to go to prison for life.

Jekowski, described as schizophrenic by her sister, made repeated "rambling" confessions to police at her Arvada home and at the police station, the affidavit said. After deciding to kill her mother, she picked out a rope that her father had used for exercising and went upstairs to the bedroom where her mother was sleeping, Jekowski told police.

Ardyce Jekowski, 86, awoke as her daughter entered the room. Louise Jekowski said she hid the rope from her mother, then pulled sheets from around her mother's head and told her she was going to kill her.

Jekowski said her mother's eyes "widened," but she said nothing. Jekowski said she put the rope around her neck and strangled her for 20 minutes to make sure she was dead and not just in a "coma." » Article here
