Man Accused Of Dismembering Wife With Saw

MINNEAPOLIS (January 9, 2013)—A St. Paul, Minn. man shot his wife in the head, sawed her into pieces in the shower, then hid her remains in plastic bins in his friend's garage, authorities said.

Steven Roger Johnson, 34, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Manya Jewel Johnson, 32.

The criminal complaint says Steven Johnson admitted he shot his wife Sunday after she said she was leaving him and taking their son with her.

He later told the friend what he did.

Johnson is in custody and unavailable for comment.
