RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Sheriff's deputies in Richland County have arrested a woman wanted for the murder and dismembering of her common-law husband in Texas.

Deputies, along with officers from the United States Marshal's Office, arrested 47-year-old Gloria Aiken at her home on Windstone Drive Tuesday.

Aiken was wanted on a murder warrant out of Waxahachie, TX, where she was indicted in the 2008 murder. Sheriff Leon Lott says shortly after the man was reported missing, his dismantled body parts were discovered throughout Texas.

Lott says Aiken waived extradition to Texas and authorities are making arrangements to transport her. She is currently held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center
