YORKTOWN, Va. — A Chicago man who quickly accelerated in a sport utility vehicle with a cable around his neck decapitated himself after a domestic dispute.  A sheriff’s deputy responding to a call of a domestic disturbance Tuesday was taking a statement from the man’s ex-wife when another deputy driving by noticed an SUV pulling a utility trailer that was on fire, York-Poquoson Sheriff Danny Diggs told The Associated Press.Authorities said the man started the trailer fire.  A firefighter noticed a cable around the man’s neck that was attached to a tree.   When deputies tried to get the man to exit the SUV, he accelerated and was pulled from the vehicle and decapitated, authorities told the AP.   The SUV kept going for about 150 yards.  Diggs said the man and his ex-wife had quarreled over the man’s living arrangements.  “He was looking to relocate from Chicago to this area, and he wanted her to do more than she was willing to do,” Diggs said.
