GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A 29-year-old western Michigan man will stand trial in a woman’s slaying and dismemberment.

Jared Chance was bound over Friday to Kent County Circuit Court following testimony in a district court hearing. He is charged with murder, mutilation of a body, concealing a death and tampering with evidence in the death of 31-year-old Ashley Young of Oshtemo Township, southeast of Grand Rapids.

Young’s torso was found Dec. 2 in the basement of Chance’s Grand Rapids rental home. She was last seen alive on Nov. 29.

A forensic pathologist testified the body appeared to have been cut with an electric saw.

Chance’s 76-year-old father, James, and his 63-year-old mother, Barbara, will stand trial on perjury and accessory after the fact charges. They are accused of not informing police about what happened .
