Alexander Kinyua accused of killing Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie
JOPPATOWNE, Md. (AP) - Authorities say a Maryland man has been charged with first-degree murder after parts of a human body were found in his home.
The Harford County Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua was arrested Wednesday, days after a man whom he lived with went missing.
Police say they found the body parts while searching the townhome on Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne.
Police also found body parts in a nearby trash container. According to charging documents, Kinyua admitted to eating the victim's heart and part of his brain.
Monica Worrell, a sheriff's spokeswoman, says the body parts found in the home had yet to be identified by the chief medical examiner late Wednesday.
But Worrell says authorities believe they are those of the missing man, 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie.
