Woman killed wheelchair bound man for "snitching"

A Phoenix, AZ woman admitted to killing a wheelchair-bound man after promising him sex and drugs because "he told on a righteous person years ago."

"I don't want my children or the people I consider family to be in a place where there are snitches," 33 year old Angela Simpson said. The killing is thought to have taken place August 2, after 8 PM, when the victim was last seen alive leaving his assisted living facility.

Once there, Simpson said she beat [46 year old Terry Neely] with a tire iron, hammered a nail into his head, pulled his teeth and strangled him with a television cord.

"You made him watch it through a mirror?" Wingate asked.

"Yes, I did," Simpson replied calmly. "He needed to see what he deserved."

After the killing, Simpson dismembered Neely's body and placed it in a trash can. She drove to a church where the can and its contents were set on fire. The trash can was set ablaze August 5, and Simpson was arrested August 19. After the murder, Simpson allegedly committed robbery with Edward "Cracker" McFarland. McFarland told his apartment manager about the murder, and threatened to kill the manager if he "snitched."

Autopsy results confirmed that a nail was either driven or hammered into the victim's brain. Before the dismemberment, which forced police to rely on fingerprints, Neely was stabbed approximately 50 times, including once in the throat.

The woman, already in jail when arrested, stated that she had killed before, and "I believe informants and child molesters should be killed ... period." Simpson was musing about the medication she took for mental illness, stating that "I think something's wrong with the world that I live in, but, according to other people, yes, something is wrong with me."
