Serial Killer Harvey Marcelin, who identifies as a transgender woman, was charged with the concealment of a human corpse after she was allegedly caught on surveillance video dumping human remains near her apartment, according to sources and court records.
The Post reported that the 83-year-old serial killer had spent most of her life behind bars for killing two ex-girlfriends. She is now the suspect in a murder after a woman’s dismembered body surfaced in Brooklyn, a block away from her apartment.
According to a criminal complaint, “a human head” was found in Marcelin’s home in Cypress Hills. Cops said an electric saw she bought at Home Depot was recovered.
Last week, the story unfolded when the torso belonging to Susan Layden, 68, was recovered from an abandoned shopping cart at the corner of Pennsylvania and Atlantic avenues. Marcelin lived a block away.
Sources said Layden’s leg was discovered a few blocks north, a few days later. Her arm is still missing.
Authorities said the twice-convicted killer could face fresh murder charges- adding to her disturbing criminal record.
State prison records show the older woman spent more than 50 years in state prison on murder and manslaughter convictions dating back to 1963.
According to sources, the first prison stint came from the April 18, 1963 shooting death of her live-in girlfriend, Jacqueline Bonds, inside the couple’s Manhattan apartment.
When she said she was leaving her, sources said that Marcelin snapped and shot Bond three times.
Marcelin was sentenced to 20 years to life for the crime. She was freed on lifetime parole in May 1984, state prison records show.
Sources and court records said the convicted killer was out of prison for less than a year when she was arrested again for fatally stabbing another live-in girlfriend. Marcelin stuffed her body into a bag she dumped on the street near Central Park.
In that case, She was convicted of first-degree manslaughter. The octogenarian killer was sentenced to a 6-to-12-year term in prison.
Sources said Marcelin was denied parole several times. She admitted to having “a problem with women” at one hearing.
Records show the aging suspect was released from the Cayuga Correctional Facility upstate in late 2019.
In Marcelin’s latest case, on February 27, the victim was seen on surveillance video entering Marcelin’s Pennsylvania Avenue apartment, wheeling “a multi-colored bag with a flower decal” on it, according to the criminal complaint.
Prosecutors said that was the last time she was seen alive. The camera allegedly captured Marcelin wheeling the same bag out of her building three days later, the complaint said.
The court document said the next day, “a human torso was discovered inside the bag,”
“Upon review of the video surveillance, the original female Jane Doe never exits the residence.”
Marcelin is currently being held without bail at Riker’s Island. She has her next court date in Brooklyn Supreme Court on Thursday. She is not expected to appear in court, officials said.
The case remains under investigation, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office said.
