BELLMEAD, TX (KXXV) -

The autopsy results are released on the young mother who Bellmead Police believe was decapitated by her husband.

The report revealed that Natasha Dauzat, 21,  was stabbed or cut 43 times before being decapitated.

The incident happened on August 25.

Police had shown up to Natasha and her husband Davie Dauzat’s home on a welfare check after family members were concerned about comments Davie had made.

Hours after officers left, a family member called 9-1-1 after Davie had made comments to them that he had killed his wife.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office described the beheading as “extremely irregular,” saying the killer struggled to cut through the neck.

The examiner said that Natasha was stabbed in several areas of her body, some of them deep.

According to police, Davie and Natasha’s 3-year-old and 1-year-old children were present during the murder.

Davie Dauzat was accused of the crime and has been indicted on murder charges.
