Police have arrested and charged two people after a dismembered body was found in a Middletown home, officials said.
John Havens, 34, walked in to the lobby of the Middleton Division of Police on Tuesday and requested to speak with an officer, officials said.
Havens provided detailed information to police about a homicide that occurred at the 5600 block of Stone Path Drive, according to Middletown police.
Havens told officers that Bonnie Marie Vaughn, 59, shot and killed a person inside the house, officials said. He also admitted to police that he dismembered the body.
Officers responded to the home for a wellbeing check and, after entering the residence, found blood and the remains of a dismembered body in a first-floor room, officials said, adding police also recovered shell casings from the scene.
Vaughn fled the scene before police arrived, officials said, but she was later located at a gas station on the corner of Dixie Highway and Coles Road.
She attempted to flee but officers were able to box in her vehicle and take her into custody, police said.
It remains unclear whether Vaughn and the victim, who hasn't been identified, were married, police said. However, the two were in a "domestic relationship," officials said.
Officials said police have previously responded to domestic disturbance calls at the residence.
Vaughn is charged with murder and Havens is facing charges of tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.
The investigation is ongoing, police said. Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Middletown Division of Police at 513-425-7700.
