A 21-year-old Ohio woman was found dead in her bathtub on Friday, the victim of a grisly murder.

Jessica Rae Sacco, of Urbana was stabbed, suffocated and dismembered, with some of her body parts taken about 90 miles to Kentucky, the rest abandoned in the bath.

Five people - including a man believed to be her boyfriend - were arrested on suspicion of carrying out the horrific killing.

Ms Sacco's body was found after a pedestrian reported the slaying to a police officer in a patrol car on Friday morning, but investigating officers think she had likely been dead since around March 22.

Jessica’s 25-year-old live-in boyfriend, Matthew Starr Puccio, has been charged with murder, assault, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. His bond is set to $532,500.

Christopher Wright, 37, Sharon Cook, 25, Andrew Peter Forney, 26, and Kandis Jenniene Forney, 25 were charged with failing to intervene during the killing or helping to hide it. Read More
