(Newser) – A California woman found wheeling a trash can full of human body parts down a suburban Los Angeles street has been charged with murder. San Bernardino County cops arrested Carmen Montenegro, 51, after neighbors who saw—or smelled—the dismembered remains alerted authorities, reports the Los Angeles Times. In what investigators believe is no coincidence, Montenegro's boyfriend has been missing for nearly a month. Police say they have confirmed that the trash can held the remains of a male, but they have yet to establish his identity.
