A MAN who murdered and chopped up his friend before scattering his body parts across two counties was jailed for life today.

Stephen Marshall, 38, was told he would serve a minimum of 36 years in prison, while his girlfriend, Sarah Bush, 21, was jailed for three years and nine months for perverting the course of justice.

The severed remains of Jeffrey Howe, 49, from Southgate, north London, were discovered across Hertfordshire and Leicestershire last year.

He became known as the "jigsaw man" after the series of macabre finds.
