HER MOTHER was holding Rebecca Olenchock back--so she killed her. And now, the 25-year-old Pennsylvania woman is going to spend the rest of her life behind bars for the bludgeoning/burning murder. On Oct. 17, 2010, attack. Olenchock repeatedly hit her sleeping mother, Kimberly Venose, with a bat in the crude hut where they had lived for two years in the woods of lower Bucks County, outside Philadelphia. Thinking her mother was dead, Olenchock set a fire at the foot of Venose's bed and locked the door of the hut. She then drove to Tennessee to meet up with a boyfriend she had met online. The mother refused to work, spent all of Olenchock's money and would not move out of the woods.
She told cops: "I wanted a new life and I wanted to take her with me, but she wouldn't go." MORE IN THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
