A WOMAN allegedly slashed her boyfriend’s throat, slept with his corpse – and even drank tea at the gory crime scene, say cops.
Vermont State Police have nabbed Averil Beliveau, 30, on suspicion of second-degree murder after the death of Cameron Faling, 45.
The Chief Medical Examiner’s Office determined the cause of Faling’s death was wounds to the neck, police said.
According to court documents, officers discovered a horrific, blood-soaked scene in Bolton, after being called to the couple's apartment on Saturday.
The police said that Beliveau cut her boyfriend's throat on Thursday, but waited two days before she called authorities.
WCAX reported that she left her boyfriend's body in the flat, and visited her parents's home in Jericho.
While there, she changed her clothes.
Then Beliveau returned to their apartment where she slept in the same room as Faling, and drank a cup of tea near his body.
Chittenden County State's Attorney Sarah George said that the investigation, "certainly outlines a brutal homicide".
Waited two days
According to Beliveau's statement, it showed that "this homicide occurred on Thursday night, around 9pm.
"She believes he was dead by 11pm."
The state's attorney added: "She called police Saturday morning, around 7am."
Beliveau phoned 911 and said she had acted in self-defense when she “slit his neck” at their home, near a ski resort.
She explained to them that she and Faling always argued about cleaning the house.
Also, her boyfriend refused to help her buy pot, she added.
But Sarah George said the evidence doesn't reflect comments about self-defense.
Investigators found that Faling was the only one with defensive wounds.
During the police investigation, Beliveau admitted to approaching Faling while clutching the knife behind her back.
It's understood that she had bought the weapon weeks earlier.
Cops said Beliveau had acknowledged cutting her boyfriend’s throat – but she has pleaded not guilty to his murder at an initial court hearing.
She's being held without bail.
Beliveau’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request to comment, said the Associated Press.
