I combined two hives using the newspaper method but the bees still killed each other

I had a weak queenless hive without a queen that I combined with a strong hive. I used two sheets of newspaper and put the queenright hive on the bottom, queenless hive on top. They chewed through the paper in about 24 hours. I’ve just gone outside and seen them fighting to death. 100s of dead bees are scattered around the hive – up to a few meters away. What did I do wrong?
