NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a New York City man accused of killing and dismembering his mother had on his cellphone a photo of him holding her severed head.
Bahsid McLean wore a garbage bag Thursday during his Bronx court appearance on a murder charge. He was ordered held without bail.
His attorney says McLean is off medication and will undergo a psychiatric evaluation. He says McLean was wearing the bag because he urinated on himself.
The criminal complaint says McLean stabbed Tanya Byrd and then cut up her body with help from another man.
A resident walking his dog came across the remains early Tuesday. Police say they were stuffed in four bags and scattered along four blocks.
The second suspect, William Harris, was arraigned on charges that include hindering prosecution.
