    DETROIT (Nov. 12) - A high school senior and another teenager were charged Monday in the slaying and mutilation of an adult acquaintance, whose burned torso was found last week, and severed head discovered this weekend in a local river. Prosecutors say the teens killed the man for the thrill of it.

    Canton High School student Jean Pierre Orlewicz, 17, of Plymouth, and Alexander James Letkemann, 18, of Westland, are charged with one count each of first-degree premeditated murder, felony murder and mutilation of a corpse.

    They are accused in the planning, ambush and slaying of 26-year-old Daniel Sorenson last Wednesday in a Canton Township garage owned by Orlewicz's grandfather, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said.

    "They lured him in the garage where they prepared a space to kill him," Worthy said at a news conference.

    A tarp had been spread on the garage floor, and Sorenson was stabbed multiple times in the back. His head was sawed off and his body wrapped in the tarp, authorities said.

    His hands and feet were burned with a blowtorch, possibly in an effort to conceal Sorenson's identity, the said.


    I know... I know... These killers are just people, and shouldn't be treated like the rabid animals they are. Wouldn't want to get fenian's panties in a bunch.

    The photos of these punks present the very epitome of "glassy-eyed"

    To steal a line from the "Soup's" Joel McHale: "Once upon a time, when I cared whether people lived or died."

    The weird part is, the CNN.com story mentioned that the kid Sorensen committed the murder, but when the body was too heavy, he called his buddy over to help him get rid of the body. When does that ever become a phone call you can make to a friend?

    See the taboo thread on Anything Goes. The taboo of not being able to call your buddy to help dispose of murder victims was broken a few years ago.
