Pregnant woman beheaded by ex-boyfriend

An Illinois man has been arrested for allegedly decapitating his pregnant ex-girlfriend, whose head was discovered in a dumpster just more than a month before she was to give birth to her first child.

Deundrea Holloway has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, for the slaying of Liese Dodd as well as her unborn child, intentional homicide of an unborn child and the dismemberment of a human body among other crimes.

Dodd’s mother, Heidi Noel, discovered her daughter’s remains on Thursday, just weeks before a baby shower planned to celebrate her pregnancy. She became worried when she was unable to contact Dodd, so she went to her apartment in Alton to check in on her.

Holloway, who does not appear to have a record, was being held on $2 million bail.

Dodd, who was mulling a career in the medical field, had a due date of July 27. It would have been her first child.
