Daniel Wayne Staley remains in custody at Tarrant County Correction Center on a charge of burglary.

Staley was arrested at the University of North Texas Health Science Center this weekend. According to Tarrant County records, Staley is being held on $2,000 bond.

Robert Rangel, a detective for the TCU police department, said Staley was arrested at UNTHSC around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Police said Staley, who has a history of mental illness, was near TCU’s campus last month when made threats about wanting to dismember a woman.

He was detained by Fort Worth police on Dec. 24 in the 2800 block of McCart Avenue, according to a report by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. According to police, Staley texted a crisis hotline and said he intended to kill a woman with a hammer and dismember her.

Staley was found not guilty by reason of insanity after being charged in 2010 with digging a grave in Dallas and removing a foot from a corpse.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly reported the location of Daniel Staley’s arrest. Staley was arrested at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth.
