COLUMBUS, Ohio – The live-in boyfriend of a western Ohio woman whose dismembered remains were found in her bathtub has been indicted on aggravated murder and other charges.
The Champaign County grand jury indicted 25-year-old Matthew Puccio and four others on Thursday on charges related to the death of 21-year-old Jessica Rae Sacco.
Andrew and Kandace Forney of Fenton, Mich., and Christopher Wright and Sharon Cook of Urbana also were indicted in the case. Police say they helped Puccio cut off or transport limbs.
Puccio is accused of stabbing, suffocating and dismembering Sacco before some of her limbs were dumped in southwest Ohio and Kentucky. He could face up to life in prison if convicted.
The suspects are scheduled to appear in court Friday. Their attorneys did not immediately return telephone messages.
