Third female victim in Ohio slayings identified

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — The third victim of a man charged with killing three women whose bodies were found wrapped in trash bags in northeast Ohio has been identified.

The victim was identified Tuesday to The Associated Press by her grandmother as 18-year-old Shirellda Helen Terry.

Rosetta Terry says authorities notified the family that her granddaughter was one of the three victims that were found last week in East Cleveland.

Thirty-five-year-old suspect Michael Madison is in custody facing preliminary charges of aggravated murder and kidnapping in the slayings. He is a registered sex offender who served four years in prison beginning in 2002.

Shirellda’s grandmother says she was last seen July 10 when she was leaving a Cleveland elementary school where she had a summer job.

Earlier Tuesday authorities identified 28-year-old Shetisha Sheeley as one of the victims.
