SEATTLE (AP) - The man accused of dismembering a woman in her suburban home and dumping her body parts in Seattle recycling bins is due in court Wednesday morning.

John Charlton has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Ingrid Lyne, a 40-year-old mother of three from Renton.

The 37-year-old is to be arraigned in King County Superior Court. He remains in jail with bail set at $2 million.

Authorities allege he dismembered the woman he recently started dating and then drove her body parts to Seattle.

Charlton’s lawyer Gordon Hill has said no forensic evidence links Charlton to the crime.

Charlton told investigators that he and Lyne attended a baseball game and then returned to her house, but he was so intoxicated he couldn’t remember what happened.
