Suitcase killer Heather Mack faces second trial for mother's murder as she is ARRESTED when she arrives back in US from Indonesia with her prison-born little girl, six

Heather Mack arrested moments after landing in the US

'Suitcase killer' Heather Mack was arrested on Wednesday just moments after setting foot on US soil for the first time since helping to murder her socialite mother at a five-star Bali resort in 2014.

The 26-year-old arrived at Chicago O'Hare Airport accompanied by the little girl she bore behind bars only to find federal agents waiting for her at the gate.

The swoop was anticipated by her legal team who have vowed to wage 'war' to allow convicted killer Mack to start afresh, citing double jeopardy laws and the impact it will have on her six-year-old daughter, Stella. 

Mack - 18 and pregnant when she helped murder Sheila von Wiese-Mack and stuff the corpse into a suitcase - was released early last week for good behavior, seven years and two months into a 10-year sentence. 

She was arrested shortly after getting off a 13-hour flight from Seoul, South Korea at 9:30am CT, on charges stemming from a three-count federal indictment in 2017 that was briefly unsealed in federal court Wednesday. 

Mack and boyfriend Tommy Schaefer, 28 - who remains behind bars - are charged with two counts of conspiring to kill her mother and one count of obstruction of justice.

The grand jury indictment was filed in July 2017 but remained under seal until Federal authorities caught wind of Mack's imminent return.

A government motion filed Wednesday morning said: 'The United States has learnt that defendant Heather Mack was released from prison in Indonesia on October 29, 2021, and plans to return to Chicago, Illinois on or about November 3, 2021.

'An arrest warrant has been issued for Heather Mack based upon the Indictment and the FBI intends to execute the warrant when the defendant arrives at O'Hare Airport.' 

The order asked the US District Court for Northern Illinois to unseal the historic indictment immediately upon Mack's arrest.

Mack made a brief appearance Wednesday afternoon at the Federal courthouse in downtown Chicago where she pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in a foreign country and obstruction of justice.

US District Judge Charles Norgyle remanded her in custody to reappear before the court on November 10.

Mack has claimed that she was hiding in a bathroom when Schaefer, then aged 21, bludgeoned Sheila to death with a fruit bowl inside a room at a plush Regis resort in Bali in 2014. 

But prosecutors say she helped him cram the body into a suitcase and wheel it downstairs where they hailed a cab and loaded it into the trunk. The pair ran away when the driver became suspicious but were arrested shortly afterwards at a nearby budget hotel and put on trial.  

The indictment - which was resealed later Wednesday morning - includes a list of 'overt acts' by Mack and Schaefer allegedly conspiring to kill her mother, such as Mack arranging her boyfriend's travel to Bali on August 10, 2014, and the couple discussing how and when to kill her in messages two days later. 

They are accused of obstruction justice by 'destroy[ing], mutilat[ing] and conceal[ing] objects' by stuffing von Wiese-Mack's body into a suitcase and removing it - as well as the 'linens and items of clothing worn during the killing' - from the scene.

I wonder if she will go to jail, she did not the crime on U.S. soil so can they charge her when she already did jail time in another country? Double Jeopardy, you can do time for the same crime twice. I feel sorry for that little girl.

Another rising star returns to AmeriKKKa, can't wait for the movie, the interviews, she is safe at home here in the good old USA, a land of serial killers, gangs, white supremacist, corruption, homeless bums, dirty cities, dumbed down masses who live in a T.V and movie world, and all are armed to the teeth against their neighbors, a nation who has never known peace and are always at war with themselves and with the world abroad.... welcome home little she Devil, wonder if she gave birth to a 'Rosemary's Baby' like in the movie.

And the person who has recordings of trying to get people to commit voter fraud amongst other high crimes and misdemeanors, is still walking around not charged. What kind of twisted world is this?
