Speaking at Guy Jr’s trial in Knoxville, Tennesee, Monday prosecutor Leslie Nassos said: ‘The killer put Lisa’s body parts in one [container], and Joel Sr’s in another, and then he covered them with a corrosive substance and left them there to liquefy into some sort of diabolical stew of human remains.’

Nassios gave horrifying details of exactly how Guy Jr, 32, allegedly sliced his parents apart, separating their limbs from their torsos. She told of how he had ‘broken off’ Lisa’s head from the atlas of her spine, before sticking most of their remains in blue plastic containers which he then filled with acid.

Shocked investigators were confronted with a "diabolical stew of human remains" at the home of Joel Guy Snr and his wife Lisa.

Joel Guy Snr and wife Lisa were brutally murdered and dismembered in their home.



Stunned investigators discovered Lisa's head boiling in a pot, and Joel Snr's severed hands on his bedroom floor.

Both their torsos were found wrapped in plastic in their bathroom in Knox County in Tennessee.

Prosecutors claim Guy murdered his parents the day after they refused to stop paying his bills at a Thanksgiving dinner in November 2016.

He tried to use chemicals to destroy Joel Snr, 61, and 55-year-old Lisa's remains, it is alleged.

The court heard the killer was told by his mum and dad that they were going to stop supporting him financially.



After mercilessly killing them, Guy carved up their corpses and put body parts into two containers, jurors were told.

Prosecutor Leslie Nassos said: "The killer put Lisa’s body parts in one, and Joel’s Sr’s in another, and then he covered them with a corrosive substance and left them there to liquefy into some sort of diabolical stew of human remains."

Describing what he did with his mom's head, the prosecutor said: "He got out a stockpot, placed her head in the pot, filled it with liquid, carried it over to the stove, covered it, turned on the stove, and left it there to cook."

Speaking after the gruesome discovery, Detective Jeremy McCord said: “(It was) the most horrific thing I’ve ever encountered in police work – in my life."

Guy allegedly stabbed his father 40 times and his mother suffered 30 stab wounds during the frantic murder.

Jurors heard the killer had kept a diary detailing his revenge plot, with one entry stating: "Get killing knives – quiet, multiple…get sledgehammer – crush bones…bring blender and food grinder – grind meat."

The killings were discovered after Lisa's colleagues reported she had not turned up for work.



Guy reportedly admitted murdering his parents to police after his arrest, but since denied murder.

The trial continues.
