Zhao Li, a resident of Vancouver, Canada, has been charged with "dismembering a corpse" after police found a particularly grizzly scene in his multi-million dollar mansion.

An investigation is still ongoing, but the odds are that Zhao's charges will expand beyond interfering with a corpse: there was, after all, a dead guy in his house.

According to the South China Morning Post, Zhao and the victim knew one another. On the day that Zhao was arrested and the corpse found in his home, neighbors had reported on a "violent confrontation" that took place between Zhao and the victim.

Zhao is scheduled to appear in a local court on Monday, where he will presumably attempt to explain how this sequence of events doesn't sound like the murder-iest thing ever: 1. Get in loud fight with man; 2. ??????; 3. Get arrested for mutilating corpse of man.

In unrelated news, there may be a mansion available soon in the Vancouver area.
