HOUSTON – Authorities say a man accused of killing three individuals — likely homeless — placed the bodies of two of the victims in large drums, burned them and then hid the remains in an abandoned Houston warehouse.
Jamie Walter has been charged with capital murder in the deaths of two of the individuals.
During a court hearing early Thursday, prosecutor Charles Brodsky told a magistrate judge that Walter led authorities to the remains after police responded to a domestic disturbance late Tuesday.
According to court records, the two men were killed with a hammer in April. Authorities have not released any details about the third victim, whose remains were also found at the warehouse.
A magistrate judge ordered that Walter be held without bond. Walter requested a court-appointed attorney.
