Forty-5-year-old Robert M. Taylor was arraigned overnight at Rhode Island Hospital, where he was being held in the psychiatric unit.

Police say her dismembered remains were found on Tuesday. Police had gone to the home to question Robert Taylor, who was a suspect in a theft from a local church. Authorities say Taylor acted strangely when police arrived and attempted to cut his wrists when they asked about his mother.
