An Ohio woman accused of killing her husband in June allegedly lived with his body parts for months before their son made the grisly discovery.
WKYC reported that Marcia Eubank, 41, allegedly shot her husband, Howard Eubank, 54, multiple times on June 13. Summit County Police, who reportedly found Howard’s remains on Saturday, confirmed that containers they removed from the home had his decomposing remains in it.
Summit County Sheriff Steve Barry also said that they seized multiple items, including hand and power tools, that they believe Marcia used to dismember her husband.
The couple’s son apparently unearthed his father’s remains in an office that Marcia exclusively used. Barry claimed that texts sent between the son and Marcia indicated that Marcia instructed him to call police.
Law enforcement located a container in the office and two more in the basement, according to the station.
Cleveland.com reported that Marcia wasn’t home when police arrived and was arrested a day later in a parking lot. Authorities have yet to reveal a possible motive.
Though an autopsy is scheduled for this week, WKYC reported that the Summit County Medical Examiner tentatively identified the remains as Howard.
Howard’s co-workers claimed they received a suspicious text from Howard’s phone where he claimed he was moving to Texas on June 18. A week earlier, they were apparently told that Howard was in the hospital with a respiratory issue. Barry said they now believe Marcia sent the suspicious texts.
Marcia was charged with murder and her bond was set at $1 million. She is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
Sheriff Steve Barry said Marcia Eubank had “almost an expression of relief” when he located her in an Arlington Rd. parking lot. Sheriff believes texts were sent between mom and son when human remains were found. Eubank charged with killing and dismembering husband. @wkyc pic.twitter.com/bczJDcjjGG
