North Florida woman decapitated, dismembered; boyfriend charged with murder

Authorities are saying a 48-year-old north Florida woman was decapitated and dismembered, and her boyfriend has been charged with murder in her death.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said Friday that parts of 48-year-old Jan Dunn Keller were found wrapped in a tarp in a garage at a home she shared with her boyfriend, 51-year-old Timothy Dale Rose. Authorities say other body parts were found buried in a nearby wooded area.

Keller, an elementary school teacher, was reported missing Monday. When deputies went to her home, they found Rose unconscious with an empty pill bottle and shotgun nearby.

A jail official didn't know whether he had an attorney.

A motive for the killing has not been determined.
