JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Gibson County Sheriff's officials say some grisly details are coming out about the slaying of a missing Humboldt woman.
They say the woman's son has admitted decapitating and dismembering her.
Gibson County Sheriff Chuck Arnold told WBBJ-TV in Jackson that David Climer Jr. used a power saw to cut off the limbs of Dorris Deberry in the kitchen of the home they shared.
Arnold said Climer admitted in a videotaped confession to burning his mother's head and throwing the remains in a dumpster.
He was charged Saturday with first-degree murder.
Her body was found Friday in a corn field in north Madison County.
Climer claims he is innocent of murder, and that his mother was dead when he chopped up her body.
