(Scroll down for video) An elderly woman was arrested on a charge of murder after being accused of killing 14 people and eating their bodies, police in Russia said.

St. Petersburg police said that they have arrested 68-year-old Tamara Samsonova, after being accused of being a serial killer and cannibal.

She was arrested this week for the murder of her friend, 79-year-old Valentina Ulanova.

According to the police investigation, Samsonova was seen on surveillance video carrying the body parts of Ulanova in a black plastic bag.

Later, police found the decapitated body of Ulanova in a nearby pond. Investigators believe that Samsonova drugged her victim and cut her up alive.

During a raid on her home, police found evidence that Samsonova may have killed up to 14 people. Police also suspect that Samsonova killed her husband, who disappeared 10 years ago.

In all cases, police only found a partial body, leading them to believe ate Samsonova ate her victims. She also wrote in a journal that she killed her tenant.

Samsonova could face the death penalty if convicted.
