Authorities have arrested and charged a Brooklyn woman for the murder of Chinelle Latoya Thompson Browne. The head and body parts recently discovered on Long ...

Nearly a week after the latest finding of a decapitated head in the bushes of a Long Island home and other dismembered body parts found earlier in July in Bay Shore and Hempstead, authorities have identified the body parts to be that of Chinelle Latoya Thompson Browne, 27, of Brooklyn.

Leah Cuevas, 42, of Brooklyn is charged in the death of Browne with second degree murder and was held overnight for arraignment today in Central Islip district court.  Cuevas has pleaded not guilty. She remains held without bail.

According to prosecutors in the case, Cuevas killed Browne on July 5 following an argument in Cueva’s Brooklyn apartment over money. Browne was a tenant renting a room from Cuevas.

The first discovery of Browne’s remains, including a dismembered torso was found in a Bay Shore parking lot on July 8. Nearby, severed legs were also discovered.

The following week, severed arms were found in the yard of two homes in Hempstead.

The last finding of the dismembered head was found in the front bushes of a Hempstead home.

An autopsy into the findings reveal Browne died of “homicidal violence,” including multiple stabbing and incise wounds, according to Assistant District Attorney Robert Biancavilla.

An investigation into the murder of Browne remains active. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Homicide Squad at (631) 852-6392 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Browne was an immigrant from Guyana. She leaves behind her husband and four children.
