SALT LAKE CITY - Court records say a Utah man accused of killing his grandmother stabbed her 111 times.
In the newly released documents, prosecutors also claim Zachary Weston told police he cut her in several places and removed several of her internal organs.
According to the records, officers went to 84-year-old Joyce Dexter's Salt Lake City home on Oct. 3 after receiving a domestic disturbance call and found Weston standing over Dexter holding a bloody knife.
The records say Weston had blood on his clothing and hands and later told investigators he had "slit her belly, her heart and her jugular."
The 21-year-old has been charged with aggravated murder, a capital offense.
Family members have said Weston suffers from mental illness. He has a prior arrest record.
