Man accused of dismembering mom pleads not guilty

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) — A man accused of killing and dismembering his mother in Narragansett has pleaded not guilty.

WPRI-TV reports that Robert Taylor pleaded not guilty Monday in Washington County Superior Court to charges of murder, mutilation of a corpse, larceny and vandalism.

The 46-year-old Taylor is accused of killing his mother, Alison Taylor, in May, then cutting up her body and disposing of her remains in a trash bin. He has been held since the killing, and was indicted last month by a grand jury.

Police said at the time that Taylor was suspected of stealing from a nearby church. When they arrived at her apartment to question him, police say Robert Taylor tried to slash his wrists. That's when they discovered the killing.
