Louisiana Father and Mother have lived together for about ten years. The police have been summoned to their home on more than one occasion, and as recently as about a month ago.
They have a seven year old Son together who is disabled by cerebral palsy.
Mother reportedly leaves much of Son’s care to Father. Father reportedly resents having to care for Son, who is wheelchair bound and requires a feeding tube.
Mother goes out to attend to repairing her car.
Father allegedly murders Son by beheading him with a meat cleaver. Son’s head is left on the road which leads to the family’s home.
The rest of Son’s body is found in a trash bag nearby, the feet and one hand also severed.
Father is arrested for first degree murder and is confined. He faces the death penalty if convicted.
