An 83-year-transsexual on lifetime parole for killing two women – one in 1963 and another reportedly shortly after he got out prison in 1984 – has been charged in connection with the killing of a 68-year-old woman whose body was found dismembered in a Brooklyn neighborhood, law enforcement sources tell DailyMail.com.

Harvey Marcelin, a transwoman, was arrested late last week on a charge of concealing a body and could soon face upgraded charges after she was allegedly caught on surveillance cameras dumping a body near her Cypress Hills apartment. 

Sources identified the victim as Susan Layden, formerly of Teaneck, New Jersey, and said Marcelin knew her.

Layden headless torso was stuffed into a garbage bag and dumped in a shopping cart in Brooklyn, sources said. Last Thursday, a passerby made the grisly discovery on Pennsylvania and Atlantic Avenues in Brooklyn around 1:45am when he peeked inside the garbage bag. 

Police said the female corpse was found inside the bag without a head or limbs and did not appear to be decomposed. 

A search warrant into Marcelin’s home turned up a ‘human head’ believed to be Layden’s, along with electric saws Marcelin bought at a nearby Home Depot, The New York Post reported.

On Monday, a severed leg, which had been cut from the knee down and still wearing a sock, was poking out of a discarded tire four blocks away. It is believed to belong to the same woman as the torso.

By scouring surveillance footage, police were able to track down a woman seen dumping the trash bags, a source told the New York Daily News

If convicted for the murder of Layden, it would be the third murder Marcelin is responsible for. 

On April 18, 1963, Marcelin was arrested for shooting her then-girlfriend Jacqueline Bonds three times inside their Manhattan apartment, the Post reported.

Marceline was sentenced to 20 years-to-life and was paroled in 1984, according to state prison records. 

She went on to fatally stab another girlfriend, stuffing her body into a bag and dumping on the streets near Central Park. 

Marceline was arrested in 1986 and convicted of manslaughter.
