Darryl Lewis, the man accused of chopping up a woman and storing her body in a house, has been remanded.




Lewis, who is charged with murder, appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday.



He was ordered to return to court on October 31.



It is reported that Lewis and a woman were at a house on the night of August 23 when he used a knife to stab her in the neck rendering her unconscious.



He then reportedly used a handsaw to sever her head and legs.



It is further alleged that Lewis placed the woman’s headless torso in a bag and her legs in a suitcase and then fled the scene with his twin daughters.



He reportedly sought refuge at the Fellowship Tabernacle Church, which is pastured by popular clergyman Reverend Al Miller.



He was subsequently taken in to the police by Rev Miller and attorney at law Nicole Burgher.
