SEATTLE — Seattle police say they believe three body parts — including a foot — found in a homeowner’s recycling bin belong to a woman who was reported missing Saturday morning.

Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said at a Monday evening news conference that detectives believe the human remains are that of Ingrid Lyne, a mother of three who works as a nurse in Seattle. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office will make the final determination of identity.

Neighbors say Lyne went missing Friday night after going to the Mariner’s home opener in Seattle on a date, according to CBS affiliate KIRO.

O’Toole says police arrested 37-year-old John Robert Charlton Monday morning in Snohomish County, north of Seattle. He’s been booked into jail on investigation of homicide.

A homeowner in Seattle called police at 4 p.m. Saturday after discovering the body parts. Police say the body parts had been packaged and placed in the bin sometime late Friday or on Saturday.
