CHICAGO (CBS) — Police in Indonesia have charged a 19-year-old Chicago woman and her 21-year-old boyfriend with killing her mother in Bali.
CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross reports Heather Mack and Tommy Schaefer were arrested Wednesday, a day after a taxi driver found the body of 62-year-old Sheila von Wiese-Mack inside a bloody suitcase the couple allegedly left in his cab.
An autopsy found cuts on von Wiese-Mack’s forearms, and a broken fingernail on her left hand, indicating she fought back against her killers. Police said she was beaten to death, likely with a heavy glass object.
