It wasn't enough that they allegedly tortured and dismembered a fellow homeless man and set his body on fire. Now one of the two men accused of the brutal slaying of 22-year-old Zachary Irvin this past June in an abandoned building in East St. Louis is also charged with sexually assaulting the victim.

According to a report out today, Dennis Iagulli, 41, was charged earlier this month with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault stemming from the murder. Iagulli's alleged accomplice in the killing, 36-year-old James Pierson, has not been charged with sexual assault but is accused of first-degree murder.

Iagulli and Pierson met Irvin at the downtown St. Louis homeless shelter New Life Evangelistic Center and allegedly lured the victim to East St. Louis after getting into an argument with him. Once there, the men allegedly shot him in the neck, dismembered his body with saws, hammers and knives, and then set his body parts on fire.

my son and i were just talking about my late husband dennis m. iagulli (sr.) earlier and he looked up todd iagulli to see if he could find rachael on facebook.  he came across this blog and emailed it to me as we were still talking about dennis sr.  

i knew my husband had a dark past that he wouldn't tell me about but i wouldn't ever have believed it could be this.  he tried to get help the summer before he passed but was pushed away from the psychologist and ignored by another.  dennis sr. was a good man with a painful background that haunted him every day and i never knew why until now.  he was a kind and loving man with a big heart and showed only love to me and my kids.  he had an extremely bad upbringing by his mother who he never could forgive nor forget and though he loved his father, he left him when he was a small child.  dennis was never shown love or respect from his mother and experienced only painful & hurtful things from her and whoever she was seeing at the time(s).  he loved his daughter rachael dearly and would protect her from any harm that could come her way.  this man was a good man in my heart and his family's heart and his name should never be disgraced as he was a wonderful loving & respectful man as long as i've known him.  it's unfortunate that his son turned out this way and is most likely because of his past also haunting him.  my husband tried looking up his son (dj) the summer before he died but couldn't locate him.  

my husband hung himself in 2005 as a result of his past that he couldn't tell me about and i now know what was haunting him.  may he Rest In Peace

Why would you throw your son out onto the street like that? Allow him to become homeless where trash like Dennis lurk and seek out victims. Being an adopted child, I will never know what it is that runs through a mothers head knowing her child is out there in the world somewhere and is unsafe. In this case, without a roof over his head...You are not to blame though however, I just hope that this doesn't happen again to any young man who has a whole life ahead of himself. Sorry for your loss and I am not sorry for the loss of another sick man one whom you all call "DJ"

I am Zachary Paul Irvin's mother. This will never make sense to me. However, I serve a much larger God than you or I know. The vengence is of the Lord's now. I lean on him. Zachary is my only child. I was telling my mother tonight what a pretty grandson I wish I would get to see. I just have to live this life one day at a time until it is my time to see him and many loved ones in heaven.R.I.P sonLove,Mamma

If You are truly Dennis family thank you for your kind words, Zach was My cousins Child, My 2nd cousin, Zach did not deserve this, His arm and 2 legs are still missing, which we didnt know at the time of burial, Probably will never know what they did with them, who knows the sick bastards may have ate them. something tells me you are not really his brother because if you are you would know your father did the same crime, dennis followed in his fathers footprints, you fail to mention this
