SPRINGVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama man faces charges after his live-in girlfriend was found fatally stabbed and dismembered at their home.
Justin Fields, 38, of Springville, is charged with murder and abuse of corpse in the Saturday slaying of 52-year-old Tammy Bailey. Blount County District Attorney Pamela Casey confirmed an autopsy showed the victim had more than 100 stab wounds, and was no longer in one piece, al.com reported.
Authorities said a neighbor called 911 Saturday just before 5:30 p.m. requesting a welfare check, believing there had been a shooting at the home. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found Bailey dead.
Fields is being held at the Blount County Jail. It was unknown if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
