Texas man charged with murder after allegations that he beheaded his wife

A Waller County man is in jail on $500,000 bail after reportedly confessing to the murder and beheading of his 21-year-old wife. Officials said Anggie Diaz’s body was found at their home on Wednesday, Jan. 11, the Waller County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Law enforcement was called after family members discovered Diaz’s mutilated body in the home she shared with her husband Jared Deekus, 21, at around 4:35 p.m. Their house was located behind the house of Deekus’ parents on a common plot.

“Part of the body was dismembered, and the house was covered in blood. It was a terrible scene at best,” Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry said at a press conference. “The evidence shows [the murder weapon] there was a kitchen knife … everything happened on the premises, and all parts of the items were seized and presented as evidence.”

The sheriff said they cut off her head and left her body in the house.

The Deekus family, who had originally called the police, were detained at home and taken to law enforcement headquarters for questioning. Deakus remained at the scene and was eventually charged with murder. He remains in the Waller County Jail on $500,000 bail.
