A Sedalia resident, Joseph Franz Arbeiter, 66, will be in the Pettis County Circuit Court today for a hearing. He is charged with alleged 1st degree murder mandy-m-blackand armed criminal action in the death and dismemberment of Mandy Black of Marshall.

Arbeiter was arrested this spring on previous alleged charges of 3 counts of second degree assault with a weapon, one count each of sodomy, unlawful use of a weapon, rape or attempted rape, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also charged with two counts of armed criminal action.

While he was in jail on those charges, workers at Goodwill Chapel Trailer Park discovered human remains near the lot where he lived. An investigation concluded the remains were those of 35 year old Mandy Black. When Arbeiter was shown a picture of Black, he said he knew her simply as ‘Mandy.’

Joseph Arbeiter’s hearing will get underway at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon.
