UNION, Mo. (AP) _ It will be another month before an eastern
Missouri man faces sentencing for killing his girlfriend and
chopping up her body, then putting the remains in a trash bin.
The Washington Missourian ( ) reports that a
judge this week continued the sentencing case for 39-year-old
Vernell Loggins Jr., of Pacific, to April 17. He was found guilty
of first-degree murder in February in the killing of 25-year-old
Stephanie Fields.
Maintenance workers in 2009 found the woman’s body in a trash
bin at Loggins’ apartment complex. Her head and forearms had been
cut off and were not in the trash bin.
