TWO people charged over the so-called jigsaw murder case in which dismembered parts of a man's body were disposed across two counties went on trial today (Tuesday).
Detectives launched a murder hunt after a right leg was found in a sports holdall in a field at the side of the A507 between Baldock and Cottered on March 22 last year.
In the following weeks other body parts were found in Wheathampstead, Puckeridge and Standon in Herts and the victim's head in Leicestershire.
The murdered man was 49-year-old kitchen salesman Jeffrey Howe, of Southgate London.
