A 22-year-old, who was eight months pregnant, was beheaded at her home by her ex-boyfriend, who now faces murder charges, police said.

Deundrea Holloway, 22, has been charged with murder, premeditated killing of an unborn child and multiple other crimes in connection with the June 9 murder of Liese Dodd.

Dodd’s mother went to her home to check on her last week and found her dead, Alton, Illinois police said.

Police Chief Marcos Pulido said the couple had been in a two-year relationship. Dodd was due to give birth to her child in late July.

Holloway was also accused of leaving Dodd’s head in a dumpster, court records show.

Dodd’s mother, Heidi Noel, told KMOV how the family was planning a baby shower for later in the month.

“I had just sent out baby shower invitations the Saturday before. We were just excited and collecting the things it takes to have a baby,” Noel said.

‘She hadn’t decided on a name yet. She said “my little bean”. So we basically named the baby “Baby Bean”.

Instead of planning the shower, she now has to plan a funeral after finding her daughter’s decapitated body.

“I wouldn’t wish that on anyone,” Noel said.

Dodd had attended college and planned to enter the medical field after her mother, who is a registered nurse.

The slain woman’s mother also said she was relieved that Holloway was in custody.

“Because of the nature of the relationship, I got in touch with her every day to get in touch, so there was quite a period of time where she hadn’t responded to me,” Noel said. “So that’s what prompted me to check on her.”

“I’m glad he’s off the street and that’s my big hope that he can’t do that to anyone anymore,” the mother said.

Holloway is being held on a $2 million bond issue.
