Officers found a large freezer in the apartment filled with several bags that appeared to contain human body parts, according to the police report. An autopsy revealed that Liu Yun Gong was killed by blunt force injuries to the head. Fingerprints were used to confirm her identity.

According to court documents, Gong told police that he killed his mother in September during an argument. Gong wanted to drop out of school to work, and his mother wanted him to stay in school, according to police.

Gong has been charged with second-degree murder and remains in custody with bail set at $2 million, according to The Associated Press.
