49-year old Paul R. Potter is accused of murder and dismemberment of a body inside an apartment.
Police responding late Sunday to a report of a disturbance said they found Potter near a burning car and two nearby apartments on fire. A police report also says officers saw Potter throw two objects at witnesses that were later determined to be human arms. An armless body with multiple stab wounds was also found in one of the apartments.
Police responded to a report of a vehicle fire in the 100 block of Valley Forge Drive Sunday at 11:16 P.M. Shortly thereafter, officers found an additional fire in nearby apartments.
So far, no information on the victim has been released.
Court documents state that Potter made several admissions to his crimes, and had set the fire to conceal the murder.
Potter is being held in the Adair County jail on one million dollars bond.
