Murder charge filed in dismemberment case
A Bronx judge Thursday dismissed the case against a man accused of hiding human remains, transferring the charges over to court in Brooklyn, where he will face an additional murder charge.
Somorie Moses had human body parts stored in the freezer at his Brooklyn home, authorities say. He had previously been charged with concealing a corpse.
Police say they found a human head, hands and feet in a freezer at his Erasmus Street apartment.
Earlier on Jan. 17 in the Bronx, workers at the Metropolitan Transfer Station, a waste transfer site on Halleck Street, discovered a woman's torso and leg within the garbage.
Sandra Figueroa says the body parts belong to her 32-year-old daughter, Leondra Foster, who had previously been in a relationship with Moses. Another daughter says Moses threatened to harm Foster's family if she left him.
Moses has several prior convictions and is a registered sex offender, records show.
