Police tonight have added murder charges against the son of a dismembered Bronx mother, Bashid Mclean. The 23 year old and his alleged accomplice William Harris, 28, spent much of Wednesday pointing fingers at each other as the one responsible for the actual murder of Tanya Byrd.

Body found on Bronx street

Tanya Byrd’s body was found chopped up, stuffed in trash bags and dumped on a Bronx street.
A passerby called police after seeing a human leg sticking out of the trash pile.

Sources tell PIX11 that both men have extensive arrest records, and that Harris’ mother has several orders of protection against her son who has been in prison at least twice and has been arrested 21 times before.

Both men are currently awaiting their arraignment at the Bronx criminal courthouse.
