Suspect in deaths of 3 Ohio women is indicted

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man accused in the deaths of three women whose bodies were found wrapped in trash bags in Ohio has been indicted on 14 counts including aggravated murder and kidnapping.

The Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office announced Monday that a grand jury charged 35-year-old Michael Madison with six counts of aggravated murder, three counts of kidnapping, three counts of gross abuse of a corpse, one count of rape and one count of having weapons under disability.

Police discovered the first of three bodies in a dilapidated East Cleveland neighborhood July 19 after responding to a call about a foul odor. Madison was arrested the same day at his mother’s house after a brief standoff with police.

Madison has no attorney listed in the county.
