Oceanside man pleads not guilty to killing, dismembering wife
Deputy Dist. Atty. Katherine Flaherty told Vista Superior Court Judge J. Marshall Hockett that police found hunks of meat cooking on the stove at the family home and a severed head in the freezer.
Hockett ordered Frederick Joseph Hengl kept in jail on $5-million bail.
Police are unclear when Hengl's wife, Anna Faris, was killed. They went to the couple's home after neighbors reported a strange smell.
