MASSILLON, Ohio – The discovery of a body encased in concrete and buried in the backyard has led to murder against an Ohio man.
Researchers say that the costs related to a man who has been missing for more than a year and lived in the house where they dug up a body from last week.
Twenty-seven-year-old Hartville resident Carl Spencer was jailed on $5 million bond Monday in Massillon municipal court.
Attorney Derek Lowry, says Spencer pleads not guilty, but refused to comment further.
Spencer is charged in the death of Nicholas Stein.
The authorities have yet to publicly confirm the identity of the remains buried in a plastic container, a few metres under the ground.
The Independent in Massillon reports that a rental company confirmed Spencer rented excavating equipment last February.
