A former British boxing champion was dismembered and the body parts stuffed into freezers at his home, a court has heard.

The body of Shaun Cummins, a former WBA light-middleweight champion, was discovered at his bungalow after neighbours complained of a stench last Wednesday. He had been left paralysed after an accident in 2004 and was last seen alive September 1, Daily Mail reported.

Police searched his home in Leicester and found human body parts hidden in freezers.

On Saturday, a man named Thomas Dunkley, 28, appeared at Leicester Magistrates Court Saturday, charged with murder. He was arrested in West Yorkshire and was slapped with a murder charge last Friday.

Cummins had retired from boxing in 1995 with a record of 22 wins, six defeats and a draw.
