Texan authorities are probing the death of a 21-year-old woman after her in-laws discovered her dismembered body in their home.
The Daily Mirror reported that their son, who was the victim's husband of three months, allegedly confessed to killing her during a police interview.
In a news briefing covered by Fox 26 Houston on Thursday, Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry said the local police department was alerted to "a possible deceased person" around 4.18pm local time on Wednesday.

He later said that the body of young woman was found in a residence behind a home, according to reports.
She is reported to have been decapitated, and was identified as Anggy Diaz by her loved ones and family, and a GoFundMe campaign has been created to raise money for her funeral.
The campaign read: "A parent's worst nightmare. Anggy Diaz 21 years old daughter, sister, niece, and a friend. Our family is shattered by the loss of such a young life."
It went on to say that Diaz was: "The light to our family and community. Always with a smile, and cheerful personality," adding: "The absence of her from our lives will be felt forever."
Having been created on Thursday, the campaign is said to have raised more than $1,000 of its $12,000 (£10,000) goal.

Reports claim that Anggy was from Nicaragua originally. The suspect was not identified in the news briefing, but the sheriff's office identified him as 21-year-old Jared James Discus, and it later emerged that the victim and suspect were newly married.
Guidry said during the press conference that officers were met with "a portion of a body, dismembered, and a residence that was covered in blood", adding that Discus was at home when police arrived
