Police have found a body under a western Pennsylvania man's bed.

Officers received a tip that Donald Teaford had been sleeping on the bed over the decomposing body of a person who he did heroin with in his Hopewell Township apartment for three weeks.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by WPXI-TV, officers lifted the bedsheet and found 34-year-old Justin Cogan's body wrapped in garbage bags with a knife next to it.

The criminal complaint claims Teaford's girlfriend had died of a drug overdose in the same bed.

Teaford is charged with abuse of a corpse and is held on $100,000 bail. It's not known if he has a lawyer.
