Man pleads guilty in dismemberment case

DETROIT (AP) — A 73-year-old Detroit man faces 10 years to 20 years in prison in the slaying of a woman whose dismembered body was found in his bathtub.
Defense attorney Donald Cook said Tuesday that Alphonso Jackson entered a plea Monday to all charges in the grisly case.
Jackson was charged with murder, concealing the death of an individual and tampering with evidence. He was arrested May 3, 2013, after police followed a trail of blood from a sidewalk to his eastside apartment where the unidentified remains were found.
Cook says Jackson told the court Monday that he gave the victim money for drugs and she later died of an overdose.
Cook says his client “panicked ... and tried to get rid of the body.”
Jackson’s sentencing is set for Jan. 29.
