GRUESOME details have emerged after the death of young mum, 24, who was "internally decapitated in a savage attack by her boyfriend".

Deandrea Funchess was found irresponsive the Cincinnati home she shared with her boyfriend after what he described as a drug overdose.

But police have now told Deandrea's family that her boyfriend Mayzio Arnold, 25, beat her so viciously that he "internally decapitated her".

Mayzio has now been arrested and charged with murder after homicide investigators allege the attack was so violent it cause the ligaments on her spinal cord to separate from the rest of her skull.

At the time of her death on February 15, Mayzio, from Ohio, told the authorities she had died from a drug overdose, court filings show.

Officers found Deandrea irresponsive, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deandrea's mum, Bernadette Davis, told WXIX she and Arnold had continued communicating after her daughter's death in Hartwell.

It is not until he was arrested that Bernadette learned he could have allegedly been behind her daughter's tragic death.

"It's really a shocker right now to find out that he's responsible for this," Davis told WXIX, adding Arnold's insinuation Deandrea had died of an overdose "never sat right with me."

The devastated mum added: "From day one, it never made sense to me."

Medical examiners determined Deandrea's cause of death was homicidal violence after they found an injury known as atlanto-occipital dislocation.
