An Alabama man stabbed his girlfriend to death after she refused to fulfil his last birthday wish, which was to have sexual intercourse with him.
The 52-year-old woman, identified as Tammy Bailey from Springfield, Alabama, USA, was stabbed 100 times by her 38-year-old boyfriend, Justin Fields, who decapitated her shortly after. On the day of the incident, Bailey and Fields visited a bar in the neighbourhood for drinks in celebration of his birthday.
Reports state that they had a few drinks and then returned to their home to continue the celebrations. Fields had another cocktail at home and made sexual advances to Bailey to end the night. However, Bailey refused to have sex, objecting that she was too tired.
As a result of this, Fields became enraged by the rejection and used an 8-inch knife to stab her repeatedly. He passed out sometime after and woke up the following day, only to continue stabbing her. He stabbed her 100 times and beheaded her.
After murdering his girlfriend, Fields panicked and called his father to inform him of what transpired. He also threatened to kill himself but was composed by his father. His father subsequently notified the police by calling 911 operators.
When the police found Bailey’s body, one of her arms was severed, and her head was lying near her feet. Fields was arrested and charged with murder and abuse of a corpse.
