An Ohio woman allegedly killed her partner and then recruited her daughter’s boyfriend to help dispose of the body, according to reports.
The revelations came to light after 33-year-old John Havens walked into Middletown police headquarters and confessed to dismembering a body, police said. He also claimed Bonnie Marie Vaughn shot and killed a person, police said, who was later identified as his partner, Jeffrey Fellman.
Havens said Vaughn picked him up Tuesday and asked him to help her dispose of a dead body, according to the Dayton Daily News. When she arrived, the newspaper reported that Havens found Fellman’s body in the garage and then cut it up with a handsaw, according to court documents.
Vaughn faces a murder charge, while Havens was charged with evidence tampering and abuse of a corpse, police said.
“This is one of those shocking crimes that happens and is very rare,” Middletown Police Maj. Eric Crank said, according to the Dayton Daily News. Crank also said it’s not clear if Fellman, 55, and Vaughn were married, but that they were domestic partners.
Crank said Havens is believed to be in a relationship with Fellman’s daughter, according to WLWT.
When officers went to the victim’s home, they found a dismembered body in a first-floor bedroom, according to the news station. Vaughn fled the scene but was later taken into custody, police said.
A neighbor said the suspected killer seemed “a little out of place.”
“You know, sometimes she didn’t always seem to have it all cognitively maybe together. But yeah, I mean, she was really nice. Bonnie was always very nice,” neighbor Michelle McRoberts told WLWT.
Crank said police were called home for previous domestic disturbances, according to the Dayton Daily News.
