SAVANNAH, Ga. (January 20, 2013)--Authorities in Savannah, Ga., were trying to make sense of a brutal killing Sunday after finding dismembered body parts in the home of a man killed during a police standoff.
A SWAT team sniper shot Chad Moretz, 34, on Jan. 11, ending a four-hour standoff, after Moretz emerged from his Effingham County home armed with an assault rifle.
What investigators found afterward shocked them.
A severed human head and two hands were hidden behind a kitchen cabinet.
Other body parts were found in a South Carolina storage locker.
Police identified the slain man as Charlie Ray, 35, of Savannah, a friend of Moretz’s, who had a history of family violence.
Moretz's father is scheduled to stand trial in April for the 2011 slaying of his mother.
