Manchester, Tennessee -

Authorities say a man is accused of killing a woman, dismembering her body and eating part of her corpse.

Tennessee prosecutor Mickey Layne told The Associated Press on Tuesday that 37-year-old Gregory S. Hale was arrested at his home late on Sunday and charged with premeditated first-degree murder and abuse of a corpse.

Layne says a neighbour told police he'd had a conversation with Hale and had reason to believe a homicide had been committed.

When officers arrived at the home, Layne says they found remains on the grounds. They then questioned Hale and took him into custody.

Layne says Hale has an attorney and is being held in jail on $1.5 million bond. - Sapa-AP
