Florida Professor Fired

A neurology professor at the University of Florida has been fired after police found body parts preserved at his house.

There were heads, brains, arms and other parts, some of them stored in Tupperware containers.

Police said Joseph Warner told them he did research at home, including dissecting human and animal body parts.

They said some of the parts were labeled as university property -- and that Warner told them he didn't have a license to keep the parts in his house.

He's charged with illegal storage and preservation of human remains.

Warner is also charged with domestic battery. Police were called to the home on a battery complaint from his wife.

He's now been fired from his job as an assistant professor. The school said he did not have permission to take body parts home.
