Phuong Ratha, 27, slaughtered his partner Ly Srey Nouch, 23, after he became convinced she was seeing other men in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
He attacked her at the home they share with their one-year-old son, slitting her throat and severing her neck with a huge meat cleaver after flying into a rage on Friday.
The couple’s horrified neighbour Phan Sreyphet, 48, checked on the pair later that day but was shocked to find Ly’s dismembered corpse on the blood-stained white tile floor.

Phuong told police that he slit his wife’s throat in a jealous rage and tried to conceal her head.
He said: ‘I was jealous because I felt like my wife was acting differently. I didn’t beat her before I killed her. I used a white knife to cut her throat.’
The husband said he and Ly moved into the property in the Cambodian capital in February. They were starting a new life with their son.
But neighbours told police the husband was ‘violent and abusive’. He would allegedly shout at Ly and accuse her of chatting to other men on her phone.
Phan, the neighbour who found the body, said: ‘I heard them arguing a lot and the husband would often shout.
‘He was very jealous. I was worried about the wife and checked on her in the evening. That’s when I found her body on the floor.’
In a statement released by the Boeung Kak district police, an officer said that the victim’s mutilated body was found in a pool of blood by neighbours. They immediately called the authorities around 7pm.
The suspect appeared at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court this morning where he was remanded in custody for sentencing
They said: ‘The victim was found face-down on a tiled floor with her throat cut. Only the couple lived in the rental unit. There are no other suspects and the husband has confessed.’
Lieutenant general Song Ly, Deputy Commissioner for Criminal Planning at the Phnom Penh Municipal Police, said the husband had been driven by jealously.
He said: ‘The attack was motivated by anger and jealousy. An arrest warrant was issued and the suspect was caught. He has admitted to murdering his wife in a violent and brutal way. He will formally face the charges in court.’
