Police: Dismemberment suspect gave 'horrific' confession

Great..another dismemberment story!!!

A man authorities tracked down in the snow of a wilderness area confessed to killing and dismembering his wife, and described the "horrific" details surrounding her death, a sheriff said Monday.

Stephen Grant was recovering from hypothermia at a hospital on Monday, a day after he was captured by authorities who pursued him to northern Michigan after he fled his home near Detroit.

Grant has been cooperating with investigators and telling them in detail how Tara Lynn Grant was killed and dismembered and where her remains were dumped, Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said at a news conference Monday.
