California deputies said they arrested a man and a woman in connection with a grisly murder and dismembered body recovered from the lake of a golf course.
According to The Sun, Kimberly Machleit, 35, and Donald Anderson, 37, were arrested after a dive team found the unidentified remains at Blacklake Golf Course in Nipomo, San Luis Obispo County.
Although authorities have not identified the victim, sheriff’s office officials did state the person had been missing since 2018.
Authorities also stated that the suspect and the victim knew each other, prior to the presumed murder and golf course dismemberment.
No other details were provided about the role the pair may have played in the death.

“It appears that the victim was murdered in the city of Santa Maria and dismembered before being disposed of at the golf course in December 2018,” the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.
According to KTLA in Los Angeles, it has not been disclosed how the person found dismembered on the golf course was actually murdered.
Machleit was booked on suspicion of a charge murder with special circumstances and conspiracy, while Anderson was booked on accessory charges.
Both are currently being held on bond and it isn’t clear if they have attorneys available to comment.
“The suspects and the victim knew each other and this was not a random act,” officials said without elaborating.

According to a review of online jail records, both Machleit and Anderson remain in active custody at the Santa Barbara County Jail.
As the Associated Press reports, Machleit, Anderson and a third man were recently freed on bail.
The trio was arrested last month in Santa Maria on suspicion of possessing drugs for sale and being felons in possession of firearms.
It is not clear if that third person is connected to the murder and dismemberment on the golf course.
Kimberly Machleit, 35, of Santa Maria, was arrested on suspicion of murder with special circumstances and conspiracy, according to a statement from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff Office.

As a result of the previous arrest, sheriff’s officials also seized a large number of drugs and stolen guns connected to the couple charged in the golf course murder-dismemberment.
According to CBS affiliate KOVR in Sacramento, authorities seized methamphetamine, heroin, materials related to narcotics sales and several illegal or stolen guns — including a sawed-off shotgun — as a result of the arrest last month.
The sheriff’s office is not identifying the victim while awaiting an official ruling from the county medical examiner, according to True Crime Daily.
It is not clear when the couple is due back in court. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the sheriff’s office.
Sheriff’s detectives executed a search warrant just after midnight Tuesday morning at a location on the 2200 block of Professional Parkway in Santa Maria. Kimberly Machleit, 35, and Donald Anderson, 37, were arrested.
