Joppatowne, Maryland - On Thursday, a Harford County judge denied bail for Alexander Kinyua, 21, for the homicide and dismemberment of Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, of Ghana. Kinyua is originally from Nairobi, Kenya.
Agyei-Kodie was reported missing last week on May 25 after going jogging in the neighborhood. Both Kinyua and Agyei-Kodie attended Morgan State University and shared a residence. Agyei-Kodie was graduate student with two master degrees.
The criminal complaint states, Kinyua confessed to Harford County Sheriff investigators that he killed Agyei-Kodie with a knife, dismembered the body, kept his head and hands at his family residence in Terrapin Terrace in two metal tin cans and discarded the rest of the body parts at the Town Baptist church outdoor dumpster.
Kinyua admitted that he also ate part of Agyei-Kodie's brain and the heart, according to the complaint. No motive for the homicide has been established by authorities.
It was Kinyua's brother who found the body parts in the house basement on Tuesday. When he confronted Kinyua about the parts, the suspect told his brother that they were animal parts. The brother told his father about the gruesome find, when they went back to the basement to look at the body parts, they were gone. Agyei-Kodie was Kinyua father's friend.
The father called the sheriff's department and a search warrant was issued. The sheriff's detectives later discovered Agyei-Kodie's head and hands at the residence. 
Kinyua was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder, including two felony counts first and second-degree assault.
