Authorities: Woman dismembered in home, body parts dumped

A man dismembered a nurse and mother of three in her suburban residence then drove her head and other remains to Seattle, where they were found in rubbish bags in a recycling bin, authorities said Tuesday.

The disclosure came as a King County judge ordered the suspect in the case, John Robert Charlton, held on $2 million bail and prosecutors said he could face a second-degree murder charge.

Charlton has a criminal history and his parents had sought a restraining order against him in two thousand-sixth, saying he'd taken the film "Hannibal" — about a serial killer — from a shelf and told his mother she should look it and "beware."

Charlton, thirty-seven, was arrested Monday after police said remains believed to be those of Ingrid Lyne of Renton were found over the weekend in a homeowner'south recycling bin. A head, arm with a hand, lower leg and ft were recovered, Ct documents state.

Lyne, forty, was reported lost on Saturday. The coroner'south office was working to confirm the remains were hers.

Lyne had planned to go on a date to a Mariners baseball game Friday night, friends said. A neighbor told detectives she'd been dating a man named John.

Charlton told police he went to the baseball game with Lyne and returned to her residence that night but was so intoxicated he couldn't recall what happened. He said he'd been dating Lyne for about a month.

Seattle police detectives searched Lyne'south suburban residence Sun and found a 15-inch pruning saw close the bathtub, an vacant box of plastic rubbish bags identical to the type containing the body parts, and collected swabs of suspected blood, according to court documents.

Jennifer Worley, a King County prosecutor, said investigators found bits of human flesh and blood in the bathtub close the saw.

Police said Charlton had abrasions on his forehead and hand, injuries to his lip and chin, and scratches on his chest.

Gordon Hill, Charlton'south public defender, said at a Ct appearance Tuesday that number forensic proof had linked any specific person to the crime.

Hill also said number time of death was established in the certification of probable cause that overlaps with time Charlton was with Lyne.

In a two thousand six filing for a restraining order in Thurston County Superior Court, S of Seattle, Charlton'south parents said he'd tried to provoke a fight with them while he was drunk and abusive.

Ray and JoAnn Charlton said their son had taken the film "Hannibal" from a shelf and told his mother she should look it and "beware."

They also said he'd told them "life was putting too much pressure on him" and he felt he was becoming mentally unstable.

The restraining order was later dismissed at the parents' request.

John Charlton was convicted that same year of aggravated robbery in Utah. He was also convicted of a two thousand nine felony theft in MT and negligent driving in WA state in 1998.

Charlton told police he spent Saturday and Sun night at the Lake Stevens, Washington, residence of a former girlfriend.
