DETROIT (WWJ) – A 52-year-old Gibralter man was in court Tuesday in connection with the dismembering of 32- year-old Pamela Prpich.

James Bommer has not been charged in the murder of Pam Prpich, but with mutilation of a dead body, obstruction of justice and being a habitual offender.

Defense attorney’s representing James Bommer requested a competency exam, and Bommer’s bond was set at $500,000 cash.

The 32-year-old woman’s torso was found in a suitcase floating in a creek along West Jefferson near Gibraltar Road last month.  Parts of her body were later found in Bommer’s home.

“The evidence in this case will show that the defendant dismembered the body of Ms. Prpich. Cases like this are among the most disturbing to even long time members of law enforcement,” said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.

An investigation is ongoing.
