Records: 3 involved in Ohio woman's dismembering

URBANA, Ohio (AP) — Court documents show investigators believe three people were involved in the dismembering of an Ohio woman found dead last week in her bathtub.

Records say Jessica Sacco's boyfriend, Matthew Puccio, suffocated her with a plastic bag, then stabbed her in the torso with a knife in their Urbana home.

They also say another Urbana couple helped him cut off her legs and Puccio also removed one arm.

The affidavits say a Fenton, Mich., couple helped hide the parts and transport them for dumping in Hamilton, Ohio, and Kentucky. Police have said she was killed around March 22.

Puccio is charged with murder. The others face tampering and other charges. All are jailed on bond.

The suspects' attorneys either haven't returned calls or have said they can't immediately comment.
