A Southern California man has been arrested in connection with the killing of a Minnesota woman, whose dismembered remains were scattered in plastic bags along railroad tracks.
    
Riverside police said 28-year-old Christopher Marcus Brown was arrested Tuesday on an unrelated felony arrest warrant.

Harmer was from Thief River Falls, Minnesota. She had been in Riverside since early March.
