A Mexican woman allegedly decapitated her “abusive” husband before hiding his remains in locations around the nation’s capital, CEN reported.
Maria Alejandra Lafuente Castro, a psychologist, drugged her husband with sleeping pills and waited until he was knocked out before taking a chainsaw to his head and other body parts, police said.[fwdevp preset_id=”8″ video_path=”6f8mMV0bM0g”]
Lafuente Caso, who claims she was repeatedly beaten by him, is then accused of stuffing his remains inside black bin liners and depositing them around the city before texting people from his phone pretending he was on a business trip.
Police launched an investigation after children discovered his head whilst playing in a local park. His hands and feet were later found in another part of the city.
A police spokesman said: “Before the body parts were found she convinced everyone that he was alive and well by sending text messages.
“After we found the remains and managed to identify him from DNA, she pretended to be a grieving widow.
“But a forensic examination of her home found traces of his blood and bone gristle in the carpets and bits of flesh in the bathroom.
“She then tried to have herself sectioned using her knowledge of mental illness as a psychologist so she wouldn’t have to stand trial for his murder.
“But we had a doctor carry out tests and she is of perfectly sane mind.”
If convicted, she faces life in prison.
