NY dismemberment defendant dons trash bag in court

Legal News Updates Posted on

A New York City man accused of killing and dismembering his mother has appeared at his arraignment on a murder charge wearing a large garbage bag.

Bahsid McLean was held without bail following his Bronx court appearance Thursday.

His attorney says his client had been urinating on himself and had no other clean clothing. He says he is off medication, and will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

The criminal complaint says McLean stabbed Tanya Byrd and then cut up her body with help from another man.

A resident walking his dog came across the remains early Tuesday. Police say they were stuffed in four bags and scattered along four blocks.

The second suspect, William Harris, was arraigned on charges that include hindering prosecution. There was no immediate information on his attorney.
