    Paul R. Porter, 49, Held on $1 Million Bond

    A Kirksville, Mo., man was arrested late Sunday night by local police who said witnesses saw him throw two human arms in their direction. The Kirksville Daily Express reveals Paul R. Potter, 49, allegedly set fire to a vehicle and two apartments where he lived. When officers arrived, the grisly discovery was made and Potter was charged with second-degree murder on Monday afternoon. ...........

    The Kirksville Daily Express also reports Potter was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and first-degree arson. He is currently charged with lesser arson crimes and tampering with a motor vehicle, according to a search of Missouri Case Net records. More charges may be pending as the case is complex and the investigation is ongoing............

    * The accused is in Adair County jail on $1 million cash-only bond. The victim's name has not been released pending notification of relatives and an autopsy by the coroner's office.
