A Maryland man is accused of dismembering his missing roommate, then, eating part of his heart and brain. He also hid the severed head and hands in the basement.

Alexander Kinyua, 21-years-old, a student at Morgan State University, was arrested Wednesday in the attack of Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie Kujoe.

Kinyua was charged with first degree murder and ordered held without bail on Thursday.

Agyei-Kodie, an immigrant of 37-years-old from Ghana, was described by authorities as "very intelligent". He had been staying at the house of Kinyua Joppatowne, in Maryland, for six months before he disappeared last Friday.

Agyei-Kodie was last seen on the morning of May 25, when he said he was going out jogging. When he did not return, the Kinyuas reported him missing the next day.

Police put out an appeal Monday asking for the public's help.
On Tuesday, the brother of Alexander Kinyua discovered two cans in the basement containing a human head and two hands, according to the police documents.

Kinyua’s brother confronted him, but he denied that the parts were human, and when his brother and his father later returned to the basement, the containers were gone, the report said.

Police were called to the house and obtained a search warrant the next day. Police interviewed Kinyua, who allegedly said he cut Agyei-Kodie with a knife and then swallowed his heart and portions of his brain, the report said.
The rest of the remains of Agyei Kodie were placed in a dumpster in a nearby Church, the documents said.
