ALLEN PARK, MI (AP) - A 39-year-old house guest has been charged with killing a suburban Detroit couple who'd been hosting him, dismembering their bodies and dumping them in a river.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office says Roger Bowling faces two counts each of first-degree murder, mutilation of a body and having a firearm in a felony. First-degree murder carries a mandatory penalty of life in prison without parole.

The Detroit Free Press says he is expected to be arraigned Monday.

Two bodies with no feet, heads or hands were found Tuesday in the Detroit River and a canal that feeds the river, a mile-wide body of water that separates Detroit from Windsor, Ontario.

The victims were identified as 42-year-old Chris Hall and his 32-year-old fiancée, Danielle Greenway.

Police arrested Bowling, Greenway's ex-boyfriend, on Thursday.
