An 83-year-old man on lifetime parole for killing two girlfriends has been charged with concealing the corpse of a woman whose dismembered torso was found stuff in a shopping cart in Brooklyn, police sources said.
Harvey Marcelin was arrested after the headless limbless torso of Susan Layden, 68, was found in a trash bag in a shopping cart at Atlantic and Pennsylvania Aves. in East New York last Thursday. A human leg found nearby four days later has now been determined to be Layden’s, sources said Thursday.
Marcelin was convicted of murder for the 1983 shooting of his girlfriend in Manhattan, sources said. Sentenced to 20 years to life, Marcelin was released on lifetime parole in 1984, according to records.
