Man Accused of Dismembering Woman

COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) _ The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has identified the dismembered body of a woman found in Newton County on October 30th as 49-year-old Leslyan Williams of Decatur.

The Newton County Sheriff's Office has arrested her boyfriend, 47-year-old Franklin Benson, and accused him of murder.

Authorities said yesterday that Williams' head and torso are still missing. They said she was identified through fingerprints.

Body parts of the missing woman were found after a woman in Covington notified authorities that her dog had brought a human severed foot home.
