A 20-year-old man has been charged with murder and dismembering the body of an underage girl found dead in a Michigan home, police said.
Joel Patrick-Dorlice Travis, 20, was charged with first-degree murder, dismemberment or mutilation of a body, assault with intent to commit murder and carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, according to the Morning Sun.
Another man, Elisha Carman Garozzo, 18, was originally arrested in connection to the murder and is now charged with tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact, the Morning Sun reported.
No information was made available about the murder victim, who was identified as a juvenile girl, according to the Morning Sun.
Travis also allegedly intended to harm a second victim, who is also a juvenile, but no information has been released, the Morning Sun reported.
Police were called to a local medical center on Sept. 22 for a stab wound, according to the Morning Sun.
The person who was stabbed was uncooperative, but police developed leads that led them to a Union Township, Michigan residence, where they saw the man suspected of the attack with two others, according to the Morning Sun.
Police were ready to approach the residence when three people left and got into a car, the Morning Sun reported.
After driving away, they got into a crash and required medical attention, according to the Morning Sun. Police say the people in the car were two of the suspects arrested.
Authorities then searched the residence, where they discovered the dead girl, the Morning Sun reported. Investigators have released few details about how the victim died or how the suspects were tied to the case.
Garozzo and Travis were arrested shortly after the crash. Travis is being held on a $6 million bond, according to the Morning Sun.
