Authorities have identified the dismembered body found along a rural Mechanicsburg road last month... and have arrested the victim's wife in connection with his death.
Since only a torso was found, and authorities have not located his head or limbs, DNA analysis was required to identify the victim as 22-year-old Norman McCaster of Springfield. During a nearly month-long investigation, detectives secured a search warrant for McCaster's residence on North Grand Avenue West. Based on the evidence they obtained, they are charging McCaster's wife Juatasha Denton-McCaster with Concealment of a Homicidal Death and Obstruction of Justice.
State's Attorney John Milhiser says additional charges are possible. Sheriff Neil Williamson says police are not pursuing any other suspects at this time. Denton-McCaster is being held on $5 million bond.
