There is a bizarre story out of southwest Michigan today.

Sturgis Police were called to a home Wednesday night after receiving a tip that a man was storing the body of a woman in his apartment.

When police arrived, the man allowed them inside and that’s when they found the dismembered body.

The 35-year-old Sturgis man was arrested and he was arraigned today on open murder charges, dismemberment of a corpse and failure to report a death.

The names of the suspect and victim have not been released pending notification of next of kin.

The victim had not been reported missing.
