The Russian pensioner dubbed ' who confessed in her diary to 11 murders, has admitted in macabre testimony how she boiled the severed head and hands of her final victim after sawing up her body.

Alleged serial killer Tamara Samsonova, 68, from St Petersburg, is suspected of killing up to 11 victims over two decades.

In new revelations today, she told police investigators how she drugged 79-year-old Valentina Ulanova's food - causing her to collapse on the floor after the woman had informed her she no longer wished her to share her flat.

"I came home and put the whole pack of Phenazepamum - 50 pills - into her Olivier salad. She liked it very much," she said during an interrogation leaked to Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda.

"I woke up after 2am and she was lying on the floor. So I started cutting her to pieces."

"It was hard for me to carry her to the bathroom, she was fat and heavy. I did everything at the kitchen where she was lying."

During a crime re-enactment, she showed investigators show she cut Mrs Ulanova's body using a handsaw which she had borrowed from neighbours years before.

She began by severing her head which she put in a large saucepan, cooking it on her victim's stove.

While police suspect her as a cannibal, another theory is that she boiled the head and hands to seek to hide her victim's identity when she dumped the body parts close to her apartment block.

Police are still investigating whether she killed her husband who disappeared years before, and she is currently undergoing psychiatric check.
