DALLAS — Police continue to search for a suburban Dallas man accused of decapitating his wife with a chainsaw.

Lewisville police issued an arrest warrant for 49-year-old Jose Fernando Corona. The warrant charges him with the murder of his wife, Maria Corona.

The slain 44-year-old mother of six was discovered in the street near her home Monday. A bloody trail ran from her headless body to her house.

Police found two chainsaws with blood and tissue matter nearby, one of them still running.

Lewisville police Capt. Kevin Deaver tells The Dallas Morning News in Wednesday editions that the couple had been having marital problems.

Jose Corona has no prior criminal history, Deaver says. Police are asking state and federal authorities for help locating him.
