After a couple’s spat on the night of August 16, a Baytown man went to bed.
While he was sleeping, however, girlfriend Cierra Sutton allegedly shot Steven Coleman in the head, and then dismembered his body with a machete because, as she described it, he was too heavy to pick up.
After allegedly dumping his body parts in various dumpsters, Sutton called the police two days later to report Coleman missing.
She then fled to Louisiana with her 10-year-old daughter, whom police say was inside the apartment when she killed the man.

Sutton dropped her daughter off with friends in Metairie and was taken into custody last week elsewhere in the state.
A torso fitting the deceased’s description turned up in a landfill late in August, but it is still unknown if it is Coleman’s.
This is a developing story.
