This appears to be a female Red-veined Darter being eaten by a large Robberfly.
Looking again, it is definitely a Robberfly but not sure which species. Quite a large one though.
Interesting shot. The legs of the diner are certainly not those of a dragonfly (much too thick) but I have no idea what it might be.You probably know this already but yes, dragonflies are cannibalistic. dragonflies frequently take damselflies and, perhaps less frequently, other dragonflies.
