ANDERSON, S.C. — A homeless man charged with murder in the death of his friend and the dismembering his body in Anderson says he can’t remember much about the crime.

But in a jailhouse interview, Leslie Sandoval, 45, told the Anderson Independent-Mail he remembers where he put the victim’s missing left foot and is willing to tell a prosecutor if she will make him a deal.

Sandoval says he went on a January drinking binge with Seth Foster. His torso was found under a home, and his head, hands and right foot were found different places.

Sandoval says he is confused about exactly what happened. But he disagrees with a coroner’s finding he beat Foster and denies a claim from investigators that he confessed and gave them the knife used to dismember Foster.
