Suspect in Dismemberment of Washington Mom Charged With Murder

John Robert Charlton went on a date with Ingrid Lyne, police say

A Seattle man suspected of killing a Washington mom and dismembering her body was charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday, NBC News reported.

John Robert Charlton, 37, is being held on $2 million bond and could face 28 years in prison if he’s convicted of murdering Ingrid Lyne — and of a second charge of stealing her car, prosecutors said.

Lyne, 40, a nurse and mother of three daughters, went on a date Friday night with Charlton, whom she met online, police said.

According to court documents, investigators believe Charlton killed her at her home and moved the body to Seattle. Charlton told police he blacked out after their date and doesn’t remember what happened, the court documents said.

Charlton is scheduled to be arraigned on April 27.
