BELLMEAD, TX – A Texas man allegedly beheaded his wife and kept her severed head in the family’s refrigerator, KWTX reports.

Officers responded to a call at a mobile home park on Thursday morning after a man told authorities he killed his wife.

When police arrived, Davie Dauzat, 23, was barricaded inside a trailer with his two children, ages 1 and 2.

A hostage negotiator made contact with Dauzat, and he eventually surrendered. Police say he came out of the home covered in blood.

A source close to the investigation told KWTZ his wife, Natasha Dauzat, 21, was beheaded and her head was placed in the refrigerator.

Dauzat was arrested and charged with murder.

He is currently being held in the McLennan County Jail on a $500,000 bond. Authorities took custody of the couple’s two children.
