A Massachusetts man was arrested and charged with murder after authorities discovered the dismembered bodies of two people inside bins in his storage unit.
Leonid Volkov, 37, was taken into custody Saturday following an investigation into the deaths of Kiryl Schukin, 37, and Pavel Vekshin, 28, according to the Middlesex County District Attorney.
The two men died after succumbing to stab wounds.
The victims were reported missing by friends and coworkers on April 9.

On Friday, investigators executed a search warrant on a storage unit Volkov rented using one of the victims’ names. The bodies of both victims were located in the storage unit inside rubber storage bins. The body of a man believed to be Schukin had been dismembered. Investigators also found bleach, rubber gloves and items belonging to the victims.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled both cases as homicides.

Schukin had been a guarantor on the lease for the apartment Volkov was renting but recently declined to be the guarantor for the lease extension, which led to the suspect’s eviction.
