PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Philadelphia police have identified the woman who was brutally murdered & decapitated inside her Lawndale home Wednesday afternoon. 

The 41-year-old woman and the suspect were married and police are calling this a domestic homicide. Again, we want to warn you, the details are disturbing.

Ahmad Shareef, 34, is charged with murder & is accused of brutally killing his wife Leila Al Raheel, 41, inside their home.

Police say she was found decapitated Tuesday afternoon on the kitchen floor. A gruesome crime that has left neighbors horrified.

"Pretty much a lot of disbelief that it can happen in our neighborhood because we have a nice neighborhood," neighbor Joe Eichler said.

Shareef is now locked up behind bars after police say they tracked him down about 6 blocks from the home, hiding in the bushes & a knife was recovered from the scene.

Several adults & children live in this home & police are calling this a case of domestic violence.

In this case, police have not released a motive but neighbors say they believe there were mental health issues & say there have been ongoing problems at this home & a history of domestic issues.

The District Attorney's Office says Shareef is being held on no bail.
