A Texas woman has been arrested after cops say she fatally shot her boyfriend while he slept before allegedly chopping up his body with a machete.

Cierra Sutton became a wanted woman in August when Baytown Police detectives began investigating the disappearance of her 32-year-old boyfriend, Steven Coleman.

During the course of the investigation, cops say evidence was uncovered that led to murder charges being filed against 30-year-old Sutton.

Authorities believe Sutton shot Coleman as he slept and used the machete to dismember his body because he was too heavy to move, The Baytown Sun reported.

Cops say Sutton then discarded the body parts in various dumpsters.

A torso was reportedly discovered at a landfill four days after Coleman's disappearance.

Authorities say Sutton's 10-year-old daughter was in the apartment at the time of the murder, though she reportedly did not witness the slaying.

During her arrest, authorities said Sutton showed no remorse.

"Uncaring. No remorse. That's the best way I can describe," Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris said at a press conference.

Sutton is now awaiting extradition to Texas and does not appear to have an attorney.
