Rachel Leigh Hutson, now 21, murdered her mother the day after Thanksgiving in 2013

A Virginia woman has been sentenced to 18 years in prison after she shot and killed her mom — and then texted her dad a photo of the body.

Rachel Hutson, 21, shot her critically ill mother, Sarah Lee Hutson, in their home while her dad was out shopping on Black Friday in 2013.

She then called her father, Donald Hutson, to tell him what she’d done — but he hung up on her because he thought she was joking.

Rachel then sent him a photo of her mother’s bloody body.


In court he said that he tried to call his wife while he was out, but Rachel picked up the phone.

That is when Rachel told her what she had done – and even sent an image of the dead body to her father’s phone to prove to him what she had done.

“That’s when I realized this is probably real,” Donald testified, the Virginian-Pilot reports.

Rachel, who was 19 when the murder took place, told the court she had originally planned to kill herself, but decided it would be too hard on her mom.

She added that when she aimed the shotgun at her mother, the bedridden woman thought she was joking, called her crazy, and said she would be in trouble when her father got home.

Rachel, who had cared for her mom since she was 9, said the murder was more of an afterthought than anything else.The murder happened in the family's home (above) in Indian River, Virginia, while Hutson's father was shopping
