ALTON, ILLINOIS: Deundrea S Holloway, 22, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the death of Liese Dodd, 22, as well as two counts of intentional homicide of an unborn child, dismembering a human body, concealment of a homicide, and various traffic offenses.

A police commander in Illinois called the murderer accused of decapitating his pregnant fiancée a "freaking vicious monster." According to CBS station KMOV, Alton Police rushed to Dodd's house before 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 9 for a reported homicide. Dodd's mother had gone to the Bolivar Street residence, concerned that she hadn't heard from her pregnant daughter in a while. Dodd was expecting a child in late July. According to a St. Louis newspaper, the victim's head was subsequently discovered in the garbage. Holloway was initially charged with larceny, resisting arrest, and hindering identification before being booked into the Macoupin County Jail. The Madison County State's Attorney's Office recognized him as the man wanted for Dodd's horrific murder and charged him with her killing.

Holloway and Dodd have been in an on-and-off relationship for the last two years, Alton Police Chief Marcos Pulido stated, according to Oxygen.com. “This daughter, this mother-to-be, was in the planning stages of a baby shower,” Pulido wrote on Facebook on Monday, June 13. “That was supposed to be at the end of June. Instead, now the family is planning a funeral because of what a monster did.” He termed Dodd's killing "abominable" and "absolutely terrible," and declined to address Holloway by his name after stating his criminal charges, instead referring to the suspect as "monster." “She was savagely, savagely killed,” said Pulido. “She was decapitated. Decapitated by a freaking savage monster."

Holloway was detained the day Dodd's corpse was discovered by Gillespie authorities after officers responded to allegations of a stolen bicycle, according to police. Before being apprehended by cops, Holloway apparently declined to identify himself. “While at the police department, the suspect became aggressive with myself and officers and had to be restrained,” according to Gillespie Police Chief Jared DePoppe.

“We offer our sympathy to the family of Liese Dodd for the profound loss they are suffering,” State’s Attorney Tom Haine stated to Oxygen.com. “We believe the evidence will show that the defendant’s gruesome actions here killed both a young woman and a child she carried in her womb.”

Holloway is presently being detained at the Alton Jail on a $2 million bail, according to Gillespie Police. Pulido concluded his video by requesting that the public respect the family's privacy while keeping all domestic violence and murder victims, including Dodd, in their thoughts and prayers.
