Man charged with beheading woman in Minneapolis suburb
SHAKOPEE, Minn. (AP) — A man is charged with beheading a woman while they were in a car in traffic in a Minneapolis suburb.
Alexis Saborit was charged Friday with second-degree intentional murder in the knife attack on America Thayer, which happened Wednesday afternoon in Shakopee.
Several people witnessed the attack. When police arrived, they found Thayer’s body and head.
A machete-style knife was in an alley a few blocks away.
Authorities have not said what motivated the attack, but Soborit has a criminal history that includes a domestic assault conviction for an attack against Thayer in 2017.
At that time, she said they had been dating for seven years.
