Habeas Corpus

MOSCOW -- A Moscow policeman making a routine document check caught two suspected murderers red-handed when he stopped a man carrying dismembered human body parts in a bag.

Police said two Ukrainians bolted when questioned Wednesday but police quickly apprehended one with the incriminating hold-all and tracked the other to a nearby apartment where he was found hastily stuffing more amputated limbs into a bag.

A police spokeswoman said Thursday that the victim was 39-year-old Ukrainian man who worked with the two others for the local public housing department.
