New York man chopped up his mother: Police
NEW YORK (AFP) - A New York man was charged on Thursday with stabbing his mother, then chopping her into small pieces, prosecutors said.
Bashid McLean, 23, was charged with murder and attempting to cover up the crime by hiding his mother's body parts.
The remains of the woman, Tanya Byrd, were discovered near Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Tuesday when they were sniffed out by a dog being taken for a walk.
There were "several body parts - torso, head, legs, hands, feet", a police spokesman said.
