A pregnant 22-year-old woman has been found beheaded in a murder described as “horrific” by US police.

Liese Dodd was found dead by her mother last Thursday as she went to her daughter’s new home in Alton, Illinois after she began to worry that she hadn’t heard from her in a while.

Mrs. Dodd’s head was found in a garbage can outside her apartment, according to court documents obtained by the St. Louis after shipment

Deundrea Holloway, 22, has been arrested for the crime.

He faces multiple charges, including two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of willful manslaughter of an unborn child, mutilation of a human body, motor vehicle infractions and concealment of a manslaughter’s death, reports the Illinois- Riverbender news site.

As Illinois Police Chief Marcos Pulido held up a photo of Ms. Dodd, said, “She was brutally murdered.”

He added: “It is beyond reprehensible.”

The police chief called the suspect a “monster” several times.

“This daughter, this mother-to-be and her family were in the planning stages of a baby shower to take place at the end of June, but now the family is planning a funeral,” Chief Pulido said, adding that Ms Dodd’s death was “horrific”.

Ms. Dodd’s baby was expected in late July.

She had dated Mr Holloway occasionally for about two years and had recently moved to the area, Fox 2 Now reported.

When approached by officers, Mr Holloway reportedly refused to identify himself and was stopped by officers.

Madison County attorney Tom Haine said: “We offer our condolences to the family of Liese Dodd for their deep loss.

“We believe the evidence will show that the defendant’s atrocious actions here killed both a young woman and the child she was carrying,” Mr Haine said.

“In the eyes of the law, both murders are equal.”

Holloway is being held on a $2 million bond ($A2.9 million).
