Houston - Investigators say a 27-year-old Houston man is accused of decapitating his mother and wounding his father in a stabbing attack.

Harris County court records show Kyriakos Savvas Georghiou is being held without bond on Monday on charges of murder and aggravated assault of a family member in the Friday night attack.

Houston police say the suspect came out of the home carrying two knives and surrendered to officers who were responding to a domestic disturbance call.

The Houston Chronicle reports that investigators found the woman inside, with her head separated from her body. Paramedics tended to a man who had multiple stab wounds.

Police haven't released the victims' names.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Georghiou.
