He Now confessed.
Stephen Grant, 37, confessed to strangling his wife, Tara, and dismembered her body. Police found her torso in the garbage at Grant's home and other body parts in a park. He told police he dumped the torso in the park orginally but went back and got it when he heard police were going to search the park.
The two children ages 6 and 4 were home at the time but police do not think they witnessed anything.
Grant reported his wife missing 5 days after he killed her. He said they were arguing about her trips she made.
He is charged with murder, disinterment and mutilation. He is co-operating with the police.
He was recently hospitalized and released after being treated for hypothermia because he was hiding in a park in Michigan's Lower Peninsula for 10 hours.
A neighbor found a bag near Grant's home that had latex gloves, metal shavings and human blood in it. This gave the police the evidence they needed to get a warrant to search Grant's home and his work place. The work place, a tool-and-die shop is where he dismembered his wife's body.
What is with all these bodies being dismembered lately?
I hope they lock him away for good. At least he is not wasting the tax payers money by pleading not guilty. He gave a very lengthy confession according to the police.
