US woman who tortured her mother in law to death by pouring boiling water over her

Ellyzabeth Rainey was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to the second-degree murder of mother-in-law Deborah Rainey

20-year-old Colorado Springs woman Ellyzabeth Rainey has been sentenced to 41 years in prison for the horrific 2013 stabbing murder of her mother-in-law. 

Rainey pled guilty in January to second-degree murder of Deborah Rainey, 59. 
She admitted to killing her by throwing dousing her with boiling water followed by throwing free
weights at her, then stabbing her and pouring bleach into her mouth and nose. 
Desperate, she even threw her baby at police in an escape attempt.
The attack happened at Rainey's apartment in southeast Colorado Springs where she lives with her husband, Jason Rainey, and a newborn baby, ABC News reported, citing a local police report. 
The couple's relationship was on the verge of divorce at the time, police said. 
Deborah Rainey had been staying at the apartment to help care for the couple's baby. 
'Ms. Rainey commented that Deborah has never liked her anyway … she got tired of being pushed around so 'she killed her,' Det. Shawn Peterson stated in an affidavit.
The two women had long had arguments.
Rainey had recently been hospitalized for 'hallucinating' 'voices' that Deborah was going to take everything from her. 
After killing Deborah, she hid the body under an air mattress before her husband came home from work. 
Police came to the scene after responding to a noise complaint from the neighbors. 
 Upon arriving they heard a baby crying and saw a bloody butcher's knife resting on the kitchen counter. 
Rainey presented the baby to officers, asking them to take the child 'because I just killed someone' and she had to go on the run.
She threw the baby at them then tried to escape, but officers caught her on the street. 
Once at the police station, Rainey identified herself as bipolar since the age of 10, but said she did not take medication. 
Neither Jason Rainey or Ellyzabeth Rainey's attorney, Todd Johnson, could be reached for comment.
