SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WHEC) - A 24-year-old Syracuse man has been arrested in connection to the death of a Greece man whose dismembered body was found in Syracuse.
RPD investigators say Lamor Britton was charged with tampering with physical evidence, criminal possession of a weapon and hindering prosecution.
Last week, 43-year-old Maximillian Cook was found at a home on Dearborn Place in Syracuse.
A Wayne County couple has already been arrested after being accused of killing Cook, driving his body to Syracuse and dumping it in the house. Aries Ash, 30, and Charisse Walton, 36, both of North Rose, are charged with second-degree murder.
According to court paperwork, Britton was used as a lookout while Cook's body was moved from the car to the basement of the home on Dearborn Place. The paperwork also says Cook's body was dismembered before being moved into the home.
Rochester police officers caught up with Ash and Walton last week following a car chase that ended in a crash.
Police officers initially tried to stop the couple's car on Culver Road in Rochester. That's when they say the car sped off, causing a police pursuit through the city.
The pursuit ended in the 1600 block of Clifford Avenue where the vehicle collided with a City of Rochester garbage truck.
This is a developing story.
