Last 2 female victims in Ohio slayings identified

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — The three women whose bodies were found wrapped in trash bags in northeast Ohio all have been identified.

Family and authorities said Tuesday the last two victims are 18-year-old Shirellda Helen Terry and 28-year-old Shetisha Sheeley. The first known victim was identified by police on Monday as 38-year-old Angela Deskins.

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.

East Cleveland police responding to a call about a foul order on Friday discovered a body in a garage. Madison was later arrested after a brief standoff.

Police found the additional bodies Saturday after their questioning of Madison led them to renew their search.
