Police: Ex beheads woman in front of horrified witnesses

The victim, a 20-year-old lady with two kids, knew her accused murderer, authorities said. Domestic violence damaged their relationship. 

KGO-TV reports that the victim secured a restraining order against Jose Solano Landaeta of Hayward in April. Landaeta was caught at the beheading site, where he allegedly returned. 

Around 11:50 on Thursday morning, deputies were called to the scene. The agency reported that "witnesses reported an attack in progress between Magnolia and Laurel in San Carlos."

Quickly arriving deputies discovered a dead woman. The suspect later returned and was detained for murder. 

Unidentified law enforcement officials informed KGO-TV that the victim was decapitated. 

KGO-TV discovered police documents that reveal the woman's head was chopped off by a blade Thursday before noon. 12:14 p.m. notes: "Children there, frightened to come... want mom."
