2 of 5 people charged in dismembered Ohio woman case arraigned, $50,000 bonds set
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' Two people have appeared in court in connection with the death of a western Ohio woman who police say was stabbed, suffocated and dismembered in her bathtub before some of her remains were dumped in Kentucky.
Thirty-seven-year-old Christopher Wright and 25-year-old Sharon Cook, both of Urbana, were arraigned Monday in Champaign County on charges involving corpse abuse and evidence tampering. Their bonds are set at $50,000 each.
They are among five people arrested after the body of 21-year-old Jessica Rae Sacco was found Friday in her Urbana apartment.
Twenty-five-year-old Matthew Puccio, who lived with Sacco, is accused of killing her. Online jail records don't indicate whether he has an attorney. Also charged in the case is a Fenton, Mich., couple.
Messages left for Wright's and Cook's attorneys were not immediately returned.
Urbana is about 40 miles northwest of Columbus.
