COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Court documents show investigators believe
four people were involved in the dismembering of a western Ohio
woman found dead last week in her bathtub.
The records say Jessica Sacco's boyfriend, Matthew Puccio,
stabbed her torso with a knife and suffocated her with a plastic
bag in their Urbana home.
Puccio also is accused of cutting off Sacco's legs and one arm.
Investigators say an Urbana couple and a man from Fenton, Mich.,
helped.
The records say the Michigan man and his wife helped transport
body parts for dumping in southwest Ohio and Kentucky. Police say
she was killed around March 22.
Puccio is charged with murder. The others face various other
charges. All are jailed on bond.
The suspects' attorneys either haven't returned calls or say
they can't immediately comment.
