Rachael Mullenix doesn’t remember seeing a butter knife plunged into her mother’s eye, or where she and her then-boyfriend Ian Allen drove to dump the body, or changing out of bloody clothes, she told jurors during cross-examination by the prosecution Thursday. “This is something I don’t want to remember,” Mullenix said of the sight of her mother’s mutilated body. “I don’t want to remember my mother like this. I’m sure I saw it there, but there’s things you just don’t want to remember and you try hard to forget them.

Whether Rachael Mullenix actually held the knives that killed her mother or not, she’s guilty of first-degree murder because she made sure it happened, the prosecution said in closing arguments today. “You don’t have to ever even discuss, if you don’t want to, what happened in that room,” prosecutor Sonia Balleste said. “If you believe there’s a plan to kill and you believe she committed any act in furtherance of that act, knowing she was intending to kill, you’re done.

Rachael Mullenix watched her boyfriend kill her mother, then helped him clean up the crime scene because she was in shock and afraid of what he might do to her, she testified during her murder trial this morning. Mullenix, 19, testified that her boyfriend, Ian Allen, also charged in the killing, arrived at her house that September 2006 night to go through with their plan to run away to Florida together. Instead of waiting outside in his truck for her, he showed up in the hallway of the house, outside her bedroom door, only feet away from Mullenix’s mother’s room, she testified.
