Brian Walshe, the husband arrested for the murder and dismemberment of his missing wife Ana, has pled not guilty.
Walshe appeared in Quincy District Court in Massachusetts Wednesday morning … the day after prosecutors charged him with murder and improper handling and transport of human remains.
Prosecutors ticked off a laundry list of evidence they say proves Walshe killed his wife around New Year’s Day before dismembering and disposing of her body. Among the evidence … a bloody knife in the basement of their home.
Authorities also found a hacksaw, hatchet, rugs, and a COVID vaccine card with Ana’s name on it at a nearby trash site — in a dumpster taken from his mother’s apartment complex.
And there’s this … prosecutors say Walshe searched the internet for information on how to dispose of a female body that weighs 115 pounds. And on their son’s iPad, there were searches for “How long before a body starts to smell” and “How to stop a body from decomposing.”
In addition to the other evidence, Walshe allegedly paid $450 in cash at a Home Depot — where he’s seen on surveillance video — buying cleaning products, tarps and mops.
Before they married, Ana had contacted authorities, telling them Walshe threatened to kill her.
Walshe is being held without bail.
