Detroit man charged after dismembered body found

A 72-year-old Detroit man has been charged with dismembering a dead woman's body that was found in his bathroom.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says police officers followed a trail of blood from a sidewalk to Alphonso Jackson's apartment Friday. He's charged with disinterment of a body, tampering with evidence and concealing a death.

Jackson isn't charged with killing the woman. He was arrested last week, and a Detroit district judge who arraigned him Monday ordered Jackson jailed until a preliminary examination May 14.

It wasn't immediately known if he has a lawyer.

No other details were released about the woman. The case remains under investigation.
