15-year-old girl fatally blasts her mother then gets a friend to help raze down the house to wipe evidence

Firefighters found Peggy's (right, with Anna) body inside the charred remains of the house after putting out the flames

Evil genius 15-year-old girl allegedly shot and killed her mother, then got her friend to help burn down the home in a bid to destroy the evidence.
Anna Schroeder armed herself with a .38 revolver and waited for her 53-year-old mother Peggy to get back to her home in Morrison, Illinois, from work, police say.
When Peggy got back, Anna reportedly told her to put a towel over her face before
shooting her in the head in their living room, according to a police officer's testimony. 
Before she was formally charged with the killing, Anna wrote a chilling Facebook post telling her mother she loved her and asked for forgiveness for 'not always being the best daughter'. 


Anna has since been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, concealment of homicidal death and arson. Her friend Rachel has not been formally charged.
Despite the severity of the charge, state law dictates she will appear in juvenile court because she is a minor.
If convicted, she could be jailed until she is 21.
The motive behind the alleged murder is unclear. 
Anna is said to have texted her friend Rachel Helm, also 15, to confess that she had killed her mother on Thursday, Sauk Valley News reported.
Police said Anna sent Rachel a photo of her mother's body when she refused to believe she had shot her. 
Rachel's mother is said to have given her a lift from Rock Falls to Anna's house, where both girls tried to clean the blood out of the carpet. The next day, they are reported to have moved Peggy's body from the living room to the bedroom and covered her with a sheet before going out to buy more cleaning supplies.
Ultimately they decided to burn the house down on Saturday, the police officer said.

Rachel then confessed everything to her mother, who took her to the Whiteside County Sheriff's Department for questioning.
At the same time, Anna posted a chilling message on her deceased mother's Facebook page telling her she loved her and would 'never forget her'.
She said in the post: 'I don't even know if you can see me right now but if you can I just want you to know you were my best friend.

'I wasn't always the best daughter and I'm so sorry. I love you so much mom I just want you to know and I'll never forget you. 
Following Rachel's confession, Anna was brought to Bureau County Sheriff's Department where she broke down and admitted to the killing, a police officer said.
Both girls were taken into custody at Mary Davis Detention Home in Galesburg. 
They are scheduled to appear in court August 8.

The exterior of the house was left intact after the fire. Investigator's found the mother's charred remains inside
