Adrienne Smith, 43, is charged with desecrating her late husband's remains

An operating room technician was denied bail after she was charged with desecrating her husband's body. 

Adrienne Smith, a mother of four from Bergenfield, New Jersey, appeared in court on Saturday. 

The 43-year-old is accused of chopping up her husband Randolph Smith's corpse, putting it in six plastic bins and then scattering them around Burlington City according to NJ.com

Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor Danielle Grootenboer said she should not be allowed out of jail before her next court date just because she has a family to take care of. 

She was arrested on January 20 at a family member's home in New Brunswick.

For Smith's day job, she works as an operating room technician. Operating technicians help with the operation before, during and after the surgical procedure. This entails handling tools, transporting patients and setting up equipment.

Smith's 40-year-old brother, Orville Cousins, is also charged with defiling his brother-in-law's remains. Randolph Smith's cause of death is still unknown.

Prosecutors say they found 'materials' bought for chopping up the body at Smith's home. Smith and Cousins purchased the materials together two days after Smith claims her husband went missing.

The mother told police her husband left their home at 8.30pm Christmas Eve but he left and did not come back. 

Smith reported him missing on January 2 and said he left their home on Morgan Street with someone she did not know.

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office contacted the Major Crimes Unit. Later, human remains in plastic bins were found in Burlington City and detectives determined they were Randolph Smith's body. 

Burlington City is an hour and a half drive from Bergenfield.

NorthJersey.com also reports Smith was charged with hindering apprehension in addition to desecrating a body.  

Cousins, who is from the Bronx, is currently being held in jail in New York. He is reportedly single and unemployed.

The investigation is ongoing and there have not been any murder charges.
