3 Youths Are Charged in Dismemberment of Man

WASILLA, Alaska — A man was shot to death and dismembered with a chain saw while as many as 10 frightened teenagers watched, police said.

Three youths, ages 15, 16 and 19, were charged in connection with the slaying of 20-year-old Sean Willson, whose remains were found Sunday stuffed into plastic bags and buried in two shallow graves in the woods near the trailer home of the 16-year-old.

Willson was killed Friday after he argued with the suspects, police said. He lived in Moses Lake, Wash., and was visiting the 16-year-old, who is charged with murder and tampering with evidence, officers said.

Ronald Templeton Jr., 19, and the 15-year-old boy are accused of tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution for allegedly helping cut up and dispose of the body.
