Central Texas Man Confesses to Killing Wife

Local News

Authorities say a Central Texas man has confessed to killing his wife. He confessed to decapitating her.

When police arrived in Bellmead, they found the grizzly scene. The woman’s head was discovered in a freezer. The suspect is 23-year-old Davey Dauzat, charged with first degree murder. Police were called to the scene earlier in the day for a welfare check. At that point everything appeared normal. The couple’s two children were in the home at the time of the murder. Such a scene is upsetting to the neighborhood.

James Lee, a neighbor says, “It is a scary thought living in a house that I own and right next door there’s a killing. Never been anything like this. This is the maximum, this neighborhood, this trailer park, never has since I lived here.”

The Texas Rangers are handling the investigation alongside Bellmead Police.
