HAVERHILL – In his first Massachusetts court appearance since his capture in California, a Salisbury man with suspected ties to the killing and dismembering of a 24-year-old man was ordered held on $100,000 bail Tuesday on unrelated charges.
Reginald Cummings, 26, rented a home in Salisbury that investigators believe may be linked to the death of Dennis Ray Jackson, whose remains were found in separate locations last month. Portions of Jackson’s body were found burning in a barrel near the Bridgewater state prison complex and behind an industrial building in Hyde Park.
