KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- A northeast Missouri man is jailed on $1 million bond, accused in a gruesome killing and dismemberment.
The Kirksville Daily Express reports 49-year-old Paul R. Potter was charged Monday with second-degree murder, arson and tampering with a motor vehicle.
Police responding late Sunday to a report of a disturbance said they found Potter near a burning car and two nearby apartments on fire. A police report says officers saw Potter throw two objects at witnesses that were later determined to be human arms.
An armless body with multiple stab wounds was discovered in one of the apartments.
No information about the victim was released Monday. Online court records from Adair County did not list an attorney for Potter.
