The horror scene happened on a street in New York City – witnesses heard the grinding sound of steel on bone.
The New York Post reports the man very nearly sawed her head completely off in a row over her alleged infidelity.
Police were called to a street corner where they found the remains of the woman, said to be in her 40s.
It is alleged her husband stabbed her, and then proceeded to use the large knife to literally saw through her neck.
It was at that point a passer-by thought he was trying to help his wife up, and offered some assistance. Police said it was only when he was really close did he realise he was witnessing a murder that would not be out of place in horror movie.
