A 37-year-old Detroit man was charged with second-degree murder Monday in the bizarre sex slaying and mutilation of his friend, Robert Beckowitz, 33. Beckowitz was shot in the head and stabbed nearly 100 times Wednesday in his gun-filled basement apartment in the 19300 block of Woodbine in northwest Detroit, police said.

Police said they were told by Beckowitz’s girlfriend that, during the next three days, his body was cut into small pieces with a hacksaw and used for sex by the girlfriend and his friend.

James Edward Glover, charged with the killing, and Beckowitz’s girlfriend, Jeannine Clark, 21, took pictures of their activities with the corpse, police said. The photographs, being held as evidence, are “too grisly to comment on,” said Inspector Gilbert Hill of the Homicide Section.

Glover pleaded not guilty Monday in 36th District Court, where he was charged with second-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and mutilation of a dead human body. He faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years in prison if convicted of the mutilation charge, another two years if convicted of using a firearm during a felony and up to life if convicted of murder, the prosecutor said.

Judge William Hathaway remanded Glover to the Wayne County Jail without bond and ordered him to undergo psychiatric evaluation before his preliminary examination Aug. 12. Glover, who lives in the 19900 block of Glastonbury, and Clark, who lives in the home on Woodbine, were arrested at the Woodbine address Saturday night.

Glover appeared to be heavily drugged when he was arrested. Clark, who left the house and contacted police Saturday night, told them she and Glover had stayed high on a mixture of drugs.

Police said Clark maintains she was being held captive. She had not been charged by Monday, but remained in custody for a parole violation in connection with a bank robbery.

Police say Beckowitz was killed just before midnight Wednesday night as he and his friends watched the “Benny Hill” show on television. Beckowitz was described by neighbors and a relative Monday as a troubled man who was raised along with his brother, Gerald, in an orphanage. “He used to tell us about how he was beaten in the orphanage,” one neighbor said.
