An Alabama man stabbed his girlfriend to death and decapitated her after she refused to have sex with him

Frustrated that his girlfriend wouldn’t have sex with him, an Alabama man stabbed her more than 100 times before cutting off her head.

Justin Fields, 38, is charged with murder and abuse of a corpse in the horrific attack on his lover Tammy Bailey, 52, on October 21.

Fields stabbed his live-in girlfriend with an eight-inch survival knife, then used it to cut her up and decapitate her.

According to Blount County Sheriff Mark Moon, the victim’s head was found near his feet and one of his limbs was severed.

The scene was so gruesome that officers – both new and veteran to the force – said it was one of the worst things they had ever ‘seen or experienced’ in their careers.

Bodycam footage reveals the suspect confesses to the gruesome murder at the scene. In the video, he tells deputies he did something really bad and that the evidence was inside the house.

He also told officers he knew he was going to be arrested, Moon told WBRC News.

Deputies arrived at the scene around 5:30 p.m. Oct. 22 when a neighbor called 911. The suspect admitted to officers that he had ‘done something bad’ and the evidence was inside the house.

According to officials, Fields and his girlfriend went to celebrate his birthday. They left the home they shared on Bailey Drive and headed to the Springville area, about half an hour away, Alabama.com reported.

When they returned, Fields wanted to have sex with his girlfriend, and when she rejected his advances, he stabbed her in the chest.

“He drank some brandy and then went to his bedroom and played the guitar,” Moon said. “He decided he wanted to have sex, so he went into her room and proposed to her. When she rejected him, he became frustrated and stabbed her in the chest.’

Fields told investigators he passed out, went back to his room and went to sleep. The next day, Fields told police he thought he was having a bad dream and stabbed Bailey more than 100 times.

Moon believed the victim was dead from the ‘first blow’ and when they returned the next day she was ‘not moving’.

The suspect then called his father saying he had done “something terrible” and wanted to kill himself. Field’s father called Bailey’s family member, who also happened to be a neighbor.

When the neighbor went into the house, Moon said to her:what’s inside is terrible and she doesn’t want to see it,” and wouldn’t let her in.

She then called 911. Deputies arrived at the scene around 5:30 p.m. The suspect was sitting outside and admitted to officers that ‘he did something wrong’. He also told officers that “the evidence is inside the house.”

Fields allowed the deputy to handcuff him as he scanned the area.

When two other officers arrived at the backup, they entered the house and found a gruesome scene in the bedroom: Bailey’s mutilated corpse.

Fields had no criminal history, according to court records, and no history of mental health problems, according to interviews with suspects after the brutal crime.

On Monday, Moon said investigators returned to the home to collect the final evidence. He was questioned again on 25 October.

“He admitted to my investigator everything he did, so he was stable enough to know what he was doing. He was frustrated because he didn’t get what he wanted, Moon said.

Fields is currently being held in the Blount County Jail pending a bond hearing, the release said.
