FORT WAYNE -- Thirty-nine-year-old Michael Len Plumadore appeared in court Tuesday morning on a preliminary charge of murder, accused of killing 9-year-old Aliahna Lemmon early Thursday.
According to court documents filed in the case, Plumadore clubbed the little girl in the head with a brick while she stood outside this trailer in early morning hours Thursday.
Later that day, he cut her frozen body into pieces with a hacksaw, disposing of them in the dumpster of a nearby business.
He told Allen County detectives they could find her head, hand and feet in his freezer, where they were found Monday.
