A 43-year-old Massachusetts man faces murder charges after an argument with his tenant became violent. Apparently, police found the victim dead on the sidewalk outside of a Malden residence.
“The officers observed initially his left arm below the elbow was almost completely severed,” one prosecutor said.
When officials encountered the suspect, identified as Joshua Roush, he had a samurai sword on his person, as well as several other weapons in the home.
Roush, who does not have bond, is due back in court next month.
