CARLSBAD, N.M. - A New Mexico man apparently wasn't too happy with his wife.

Carlsbad Police say he threatened to cut her head off.

Officers were called out to 27-year-old Oscar Licano's home on Tuesday.

That's where they found his wife covered in bruises and bite marks and with two cuts on her back from a key.

She was able to tell them through a translator that Licano threatened to kill her if she tried to report the ongoing abuse.

She also said Licano had a history of drug abuse.

He was arrested on several charges including battery of a family member.
