PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been charged with killing and dismembering his mother and stepfather.
Allegheny County police charged 47-year-old Frederick C. Harris III on Wednesday with criminal homicide and abuse of a corpse in the deaths of 73-year-old Olivia and 76-year-old Lamar Gilbert.
Neighbors say Harris had been living in their home recently. Olivia Gilbert’s daughter asked Penn Hills police to check on the couple Tuesday afternoon after they hadn’t been heard from since Saturday.
Their body parts were found in trash bags and containers inside their house.
Harris has been in custody since Tuesday. He is being arraigned overnight by a district magistrate. Court records don’t list an attorney for him.
