Judy Fox was 65-years-old.
she later used to dispose of her mother’s body parts, jurors were also told. Police officers discovered Mrs Fox’s severed head in a plastic bag four weeks later on July 10, before finding other body parts scattered.
Judge Kristina Montgomery QC told the court the trial would go ahead in her absence, and jurors were asked to decide if they could be sure that Fox had killed her mother.
Opening the case, prosecutor Kevin Hegarty QC said Fox had bought two knives from a Dunelm store before driving to her mother’s home in the market town of Shifnal, where she ‘stabbed her’.
She later set fire to a door mat in an attempt to kill her brother and confessed to both crimes when she was arrested, the jury was told. Police were called to the property after a fire broke out.
But there was no sign of Mrs Fox who worked as a staff nurse for local newspapers the Express & Star and Shropshire Star.
However, the court heard the kitchen was covered in blood, which was splattered over the ceiling, walls, cupboard drawers and back door.
This triggered a police search for the homeowner. The court heard that a lump hammer, saw and an axe were discovered nearby.
“So in the absence of much of her body, the job of the forensic pathologist in giving a cause of the death was made all the more difficult. “He cannot give a cause of death. “Nevertheless, the recovered head is identified to be that of Judith Fox by examination of dental records,” said Mr Hegarty.
He added: “So we say the evidence shows that Lucy Fox killed her mother. “She entered the house carrying at least one knife and killed her mother in the kitchen.
“The amount of blood in the kitchen compared with absence in other parts of the house shows that is where she was killed. “She was then cut up and then disposed of.”
The court was also told by the prosecutor: “The evidence will show also that before Lucy Fox arrived she had visited Coalport and was in vicinity of where her mother’s body was found.
