Davey Dauzat, a man living in Texas, has been arrested and charged with first degree murder after police say his wife’s head was found in a freezer in the couple’s home.
Dauzat, 23, had been contacted by police earlier in the day after they were called to the home for a welfare check. The PR said claimed Dauzat was assaulting his wife, Natasha.
Officers returned later after another call stated Dauzat had murdered his wife. After negotiating with Dauzat during a stand off, police say he emerged from the home covered in blood and admitted to killing his wife while the couple’s two children, ages one and two, were in the home. “It is a scary though living in a house that I own and right next door there’s a killing. Never been anything like this,” said neighbor James Lee. The Texas Rangers along with the Bellmead police are investigating. h/t kxan
Dauzat is being held Friday at the McLennan County jail on the murder charge. Bond is set at $500,000.
