Report: Fla. woman dismembered neighbor, cooked remains

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A Florida woman is accused of cooking her neighbor after strangling and dismembering him in order to hide evidence.

Court documents obtained by Orlando television station says Angela Stoldt tried to cremate her neighbor's body by putting several body parts in an oven and in pots on the stove. When that didn't work, she put his body parts in bags and threw them in the trash.

A grand jury in Daytona Beach last week upgraded Stoldt's charges to first-degree murder from second degree murder in the death of her neighbor, James Sheaffer.

Law enforcement officials say Stoldt relied on Sheaffer for money, although their relationship was platonic, and that money was the motive for the murder.

She's being held without bond and it's unclear whether hired an attorney.
