    A Massachusetts man has been found guilty in the murder of a man whose body parts were found inside a discarded duffel bag.

    Carlos Colina, 32, of Cambridge, was convicted Friday of first-degree murder and improper disposal of human remains in connection with the April 2015 death and dismemberment of 26-year-old Jonathan Camilien, of Somerville.

    "The facts of this case are particularly disturbing," Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement. "After a fatal altercation with the victim, the defendant deliberately tried to cover up his crime by dismembering the victim's body and using various cleaning procducts in an attempt to remove any trace evidence from the scene."

    The remains, including a torso and limbs, were found in a duffel bag outside a Biogen building, prosecutors argued. A head was found in a recycling bin in Colina's apartment building across the street.
