Police arrested Judson Taylor, 56, on Nov. 6 and charged him two days later with murder in connection with the stabbing death of Kevin Perry, 37, WFLD reported.

On Oct. 23, Taylor invited Perry, an alleged drug dealer he had known for years, to his home. According to prosecutors, Taylor and Perry previously had been in a dispute and Taylor allegedly was still angry and wanted to kill Perry.

At Taylor’s apartment, prosecutors said, a fight broke out, and the suspect allegedly stabbed Perry and then “knowingly dismembered, severed, separated, dissected, or mutilated” the body.

Court documents obtained by WFLD show Taylor allegedly scattered the remains in his neighborhood.

On Nov. 2, trash collectors discovered Perry’s lower body, the station reported, citing law enforcement sources. Three days later, on Nov. 5, the suspect phoned 911 because he said he was experiencing breathing problems after discovering two arms.

Responding officers located the limbs as well as the victim’s upper torso near Taylor’s apartment complex.

Taylor allegedly admitted to investigators that he fatally stabbed Perry 10 times and then cut up the body, prosecutors said.

He was being held without bond.
