A man accused of killing a Bronx man in Highbridge in March was indicted in court Tuesday.
Sheldon Johnson was hit with a long list of charges in court including first-degree murder for the brutal death of 44-year-old Collin Small. Johnson is accused of shooting Small in the head at an apartment in Highbridge then chopping up his body to hide his remains.
The district attorney confirmed Johnson was caught by surveillance cameras going in and out of the victim’s apartment wearing a wig and different disguises on March 5. Johnson was seen carrying multiple bags with cleaning supplies and allegedly parts of the victim's body.
Investigators say a search warrant led them to finding the victim's head along with other body parts inside a freezer at Johnson's apartment in Manhattan.
Johnson has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon, first- and second-degree murder, manslaughter, robbery, burglary, tampering with evidence and concealing a dead body.
The district attorney says Johnson will be back in court on June 12 when his trial begins.
