THE BRONX - The Bronx man accused of killing and dismembering his own mother has been indicted on murder and manslaughter charges.

Prosecutors say Bashid McLean stabbed and dismembered Tanya Byrd last month. Her body parts were found in trash bags lining several streets in Melrose.

The 23-year-old's alleged accomplice, William Harris, has been charged with hindering prosecution.

Both men are scheduled to be back in court again on March 22.
