Cypress Hills, Brooklyn -

An 83-year-old serial killer has been arrested and is being held without bail on Riker's Island after police allegedly witnessed the suspect on surveillance camera footage dumping the dismembered torso of her ex-girlfriend, which was found in a trash bag placed in a shopping cart on the corner of Pennsylvania and Atlantic Avenues, in East New York, Brooklyn. Days later, a human leg severed at the knee was found a few blocks away from the suspects apartment building in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.

Harvey Marceline who identifies as a transgender woman was charged last week with concealment of a human corpse, which was upgraded to an indictment on murder charges on Thursday, March 10, 2022, after officers obtained a search warrant and discovered the victim's severed head in Marceline's home, along with electric saws and cleaner fluids. Blood was said to have been splattered everywhere sources confirmed. The victim has been identified by sources to be 68-year-old Susan Leyden who was reported missing by a friend on March 2, 2022.

Marceline has served two separate prison sentences in prior years. April 18, 1963, she was sentenced to 20 years - to- life for the shooting death of a live in ex-girlfriend, Jacqulene Bonds, inside their Manhattan apartment. Apparently, Marceline 'snapped' when Bond told her she was leaving the relationship. Marceline served the term from 1963 until she was freed with lifetime parole in 1984. A short while after she was paroled, Marceline was arrested again for fatally stabbing another live-in girlfriend and stuffing her body into a bag and dumping it on the street near Central Park, sources and court records have documented. In 1986, Marceline was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in the case and sentenced to a six-year term-to-12-year term in prison. Marcelin was denied parole several times, sources said, and admitted at one hearing that she had “a problem with women.” She served the term from 1986 to 2019 when she was once again free with lifetime parole.

The next court date in Brooklyn Supreme Court is Thursday, March 15, 2022. Officials said she is not expected to appear in court.
