Man beheads wife ‘to get the evil out of her’

A man who admitted to decapitating his wife and her two dogs in a bloody incident in Phoenix has said he was attempting to “get the evil out of her.’’

Apparently, Kenneth-Dale Wakefield, 43, had smoked marijuana and the designer drug spice before the gruesome killings in a Phoenix apartment on July 25.

Wakefield, a transient with a history of mental illness, was booked into a Maricopa County jail on Aug. 1 on one-count of first-degree murder and two counts of animal cruelty after being released from a local hospital.

He said during an interview that he stabbed his 49-year-old wife, Trina Heisch, multiple times before decapitating her and killed the dogs by cutting their heads off trying to get the evil out of Trina.

Wakefield who had also severed his left arm at the elbow and gouged out one of his eyes, was discovered by a neighbour who told police he was checking up on the couple because he knew the man had mental illness issues.

The neighbour entered the home and found the headless Heisch in a bedroom closet along with the two dogs.

When he opened the door of the apartment, he saw Wakefield naked, with part of his arm cut off and his right eye missing, then he called the police.

The police said large amounts of blood was spread across the floors, cabinets and walls of the apartment, and several bloody knives were recovered.

Meanwhile, investigators said both Wakefield and his wife had histories of mental illness, domestic violence and drug abuse.

The investigators said Wakefield was arrested in 2003 for attempting to kill a family member, while Heisch was arrested in March for domestic violence as she was alleged to have tried to stab Wakefield.

They said family members said during investigation that the two married after meeting in a mental health facility.
