COLUMBUS, Ohio (CBS/AP) The world doesn't need another incarnation of Jeffrey Dahmer, the notorious serial killer. But an Ohio coroner says the head and arms of a woman were found in the freezer of a man charged with killing her.

Police have charged 50-year-old Robert Knight with murder in the death of 44-year-old Tracey Moore, who lived with Knight at an apartment complex on the southwest side of Columbus.

Columbus police say other remains were found in trash bins, a pond and brush around the same apartment complex.

Knight was in court Friday morning and made no comment as a judge set bond at $2 million.

Police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner (WY'-nur) says a resident of the apartments is being questioned by detectives.

Weiner says authorities were called to the apartment complex Wednesday night after a maintenance worker pulled from the pond what he suspected were body parts.

Homicide Sgt. Dana Norman described the scene as "disgusting." Police looking for more remains were joined on Thursday by coroner's officials and Ohio State University anthropologists.

The coroner, Jan Gorniak, says she may wait to perform the autopsy until more remains are found.
