Police have identified a suspect in connection with the discovery of body parts found at an Ontario home.

San Bernardino resident, 51-year-old Carmen Montenegro (pictured, below), was arrested Sunday, according to police. She was booked on homicide charges, said detective Jeff Crittenden.

Police were called to the house on Holmes Avenue near H Street at 2:35 p.m. on Sunday when a witness spotted a woman pushing a trash can with what appeared to be a human body.

"I personally didn't see it. I just know that it is something you would not normally see in the middle of the daytime," Crittenden said.

Montenegro was staying with relatives at the home, police said Monday.

Home video, taken by neighbor James Barthlow, showed at least two people taken into custody by police.

The San Bernardino coroner was at the home Monday morning. It is unclear whether the remains are from more than one person.
