Authorities in Texas charged Jason Thornburg, 41, with capital murder after the remains of three humans were found in a burning dumpster, CBS Dallas-Ft.Worth reported Tuesday.
The suspect reportedly cut the throat of David Lueras, 42, who was his roommate in a motel in Euless. He allegedly dismembered the body in the bathtub and eventually stored the body parts in "Rubbermaid type bins."
He then allegedly murdered a woman by slitting her throat, again dismembering her and place the remains in tubs. He allegedly then stabbed and strangled a second woman before disposing of her body in the same manner.
He also allegedly admitting murdering a 61-year-old man in May and killing a woman in another state.
An affidavit filed in the case alleged that "Thornburg said he has an in-depth knowledge of the Bible and believes he was called to commit human sacrifices."
Thornburg's bond was set at $1 million.
'When are they going to apologize?' Conservative slams Republicans who accused Mark Milley of treason
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Mark Milley came under furious fire from Republicans after an excerpt from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa's upcoming book appeared to suggest he subverted the chain of command to take over U.S. military policy in the waning days of Donald Trump's presidency, with Trump himself even accusing him of treason.
But in his hearing on Tuesday, Milley clarified he did nothing of the sort, and was conveying the official position of the administration in his talks with China.
On CNN that evening, conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot tore into the Republicans who had been so quick to go after Milley's conduct.
"So Max, General Milley is rejecting GOP criticism of revelations in that new book 'Peril,'" said anchor Erin Burnett. "The revelation, of course, that he called his Chinese counterpart, General Li, twice to assure him the United States would not be attacking China, and furthermore, said he would tell them if we were going to. He says the former Defense Secretary Esper and others were completely in the loop. How important is that?"
"I think it's very important because that diffuses one of the incendiary charges that Republicans have been making against Milley," said Boot. "I mean, remember when the excerpts from the Woodward/Costa book came out, you had people like Senator Marco Rubio and Donald Trump accusing General Milley of treason. That was the word they used for this decorated-combat veteran claiming that he went behind Trump's back to undermine him, talking to this Chinese general. And clearly, there was a lot less to the story than they thought."
"I think General Milley offered a very persuasive explanation that nobody has really rebutted to show that actually he kept everybody in the administration in the loop," continued Boot. "He wasn't doing anything untoward, he was just doing his job. And so, you know, I kind of wonder, Erin, when are Senator Rubio and — and former President Trump and others, when are they going to apologize to General Milley for the aspersions they have cast on his character?"

MAGA-rioting elementary school teacher pleads guilty after her husband lied to the FBI about her entering Capitol
A Missouri couple who had boasted on Facebook of being "the first ones in" to the U.S. Capitol on January 6 has plead guilty to remaining unlawfully in the building they told FBI agents they hadn't entered.
Kelsey Leigh Ann Wilson -- then a first-grade teacher -- and her husband Zachary Wilson entered their guilty pleas Monday and await December 7 sentencing. Zachary Wilson had been arrested in February, but Kelsey Wilson hadn't been booked until six months later.
FBI investigators interviewed Kelsey and Zachary Wilson on Jan. 18 at their home in Springfield, the documents said. During the interview, both said they had been on the Capitol grounds on Jan. 6 but denied entering the building.
An FBI agent interviewed Zachary Wilson a second time at his home on Jan. 20, according to the documents. Zachary Wilson then admitted entering the Capitol building but said his wife did not go inside.
But a coworker of Kelsey Wilson who accompanied them to Washington D.C. was interviewed by FBI agents and said the two had gone into the Capitol for 30 minutes. She shared a photo of Kelsey Wilson "wearing a black, white and gold beanie, white pants, a gray long-sleeved shirt and a 'Keep America Great Again' pro-Trump flag wrapped around her body," the FBI reported.
It was Kelsey Wilson's position as a first-grade teacher that had drawn the most attention when she arrested. At the time, the attorney said she expected to lose her new job at Dayspring Christian School in Springfield, Missouri. She was put on administrative leave and, as of Tuesday, the school told reporters she was no longer employed there.
