Who is Mayzio Arnold? Man who beat girlfriend to death and told her mother she overdosed arrested
HAMILTON COUNTY, OHIO: Deandrea Funchess, a mother of two, was found unresponsive in the 300 block of West Galbraith Road, Hartwell, Cincinnati on February 15. She was in a live-in relationship with her boyfriend, Mayzio Arnold, 25. Arnold had told her parents that she had lost her life due to overdosing. In a recent turn of events, the police have arrested the Ohio native for beating his girlfriend to the extent of "internally decapitating" her.
Arnold was arrested on July 13, Wednesday, and charged with murder. Allegedly, his abuse left the victim unconscious, and she breathed her last at the Hartwell residence. The damage caused her spinal cord to separate from the base of the skull. For six months until last Wednesday, Deandrea's mother, Bernadette Davis, was under the assumption that her daughter had overdosed herself to death. In an interview with Fox 19, she said she had been speaking to Arnold all these months without the slightest of doubts.

She said about Arnold, "It's really a shocker right now to find out that he's responsible for this." It also "just never sat" with her the day Arnold told her about Deandra's OD, and she feels immensely guilty for having spoken to him all these months only so she could remain in touch with her two grandchildren. She added that the children loved him as a father, and apart from a few issues, just like any other couple, Arnold and her daughter never really appeared to have anything monumentally wrong going on between themselves. Speaking of their apparently dismissable conflicts, she said, "I'd never in a million years have thought that this would have been the outcome of that situation."
Funchess, who was employed at a nursing home at the time of her death, had worked really hard to change her ways for her children, Davis added. She was a vivacious person and "the life of the party," and her mother is still reeling from the shock of her death.
Arnold is currently awaiting his trial. The Hamilton County Justice Center records published online show that his bond is set at $750,000. His bond type is a number 10 along with an EMU notation which necessitates the presence of an electronic monitoring device placed upon his leg. The trial is set to begin on July 25.
